Metal Product Destruction

E-Cycle Environmental can always ensure complete destruction if your organization has contaminated product, old inventory, warranty returns, or any other variation. There are a few different options when performing a product destruction service for products that consist of metal.

The first step to discerning the best way to destroy your product is to understand the material composition. What type of metal do you have? Are there moving parts? If so, are there any other materials residing in the product? Are any textile materials mixed in as well? Are there any electronics or wires? Does it contain any batteries, light bulbs, or liquids. No matter what, if there batteries, light bulbs, or liquids they will have to be removed prior to the product destruction process. These are all big questions that will determine cost and the final recommended solution.

After we understand the composition of your product, our consultants need to know how it’s packaged. The reason for this is that when things are destroyed it is usually broken down to be recycled. Many people feel that their, “metal product” is worth something because it is made out of metal. While there may be some recoverable value from the metal recycling the logistic and labor cost is usually much more. One has to understand if the, “metal product” needs to be unpackaged or hand dismantled (ie remove batteries) a considerable amount of time and man power will be devoted to this. Hence, the cleaner the material (or the more of one kind of material in the product) the lower the cost. So our consultants will find out how and what packages the product. We will need to know package material composition and the number of units in each.

Finally, the logistics will need to be understood. Are these items in a roll off bin, warehouse, office space, packed in boxes, or wrapped on pallets? Do you have forklifts available or pallet jacks. Are there loading docks? After these questions are answered, we will put together the trucks and moving equipment to remove the products out of your location. We have all the apparatus to handle any type of situation.

Once all of these topics are covered we will most likely recommend a variation of destruction processes. Most metal product destruction solutions include labor, up front prepping, shredding or a crushing process. The great thing about E-Cycle Environmental is that we have many different shredding options. We can shred something that is the size of a truck all the way down to a small widget. Through the shredding process your material will be completely destroyed thus waiving any liabilities your organization has to the material. We will provide a certified product destruction certificate, weight receipts, and recycling certificates. If your organization is seeking some other form of documentation please do not hesitate to ask. We build all of our solutions around our customers needs and wants.
