Aluminum is fully recyclable and with its unique properties it can be recycled repeatedly without degradation or loss of it’s innate characteristics.
ALMAG does recycle all process produced scrap aluminum. Everything from the un-used end of the billet through to saw chips from fabrication is collected and sent to a recycling facility. It makes sense from a financial perspective given the value of aluminum metal, and it makes sense environmentally because aluminum is 100% recyclable and can be recycled over again without losing properties – it’s a win-win.
