Recycling Stainless Steel: Why Choose Us

Stainless steel, with its long service life and 100% recyclability, has become an excellent environmental performer. It contains valuable raw materials like nickel and chromium, making it highly desirable in the recycling industry. At Action Metal Recyclers, we specialise in recycling stainless steel, offering competitive prices and unparalleled service. Here’s why you should choose us for your stainless steel recycling needs.

What Stainless Steel Grades Do We Recycle?

We primarily recycle stainless steel grades 304 and 316. These grades are commonly found in household appliances, cooking equipment, tubes, bars, rails, sheets, and plates. Stainless 304 comprises iron, chromium, and nickel, while 316 is alloyed with molybdenum, attracting a higher price. If you’re unsure about the type of stainless steel you have, our expert Scrap Buyers can provide an accurate quote.
