Recycling Efforts - One step forward to help Individuals, Businesses, and the Environment

Countries should adopt best recycling practices to reduce their carbon footprints and landfills. 

You might have heard about the term “Bartering”.  It is a simple method of exchanging goods and services.

It is an effective option to streamline recycling process for a holistic waste management. Barter system was the main method of transaction in ancient times. However, the concept of monetary transactions and different methods of trading’s evolved but still the barter system can be observed like street hawkers giving metals utensils in exchange for old clothes or plastic, housewares or exchange of newspapers.

Many NGO’s are serving community through working on projects where they give back to the society locally green fresh good in exchange of collecting waste scrap items from them like aluminium cans, newspaper, cardboard, glass or electronic waste and selling it to local scrap dealer.

Some of the schools are giving awareness by encouraging students to deposit recyclable items to improve the infrastructure of the school in exchange of canteen coupon. 

Actually, the idea is to raise awareness among individuals the impact of recycling in building healthy environment.

Bartering can go up a notch and be practiced on a larger industrial scale as well. People should not discard metal made objects. Instead, they can sell to Recycling companies in UAE.  

Scrap buyers in Dubai then further recycle the scrap metals for various purposes.  Using scrap metal instead of new metal is economical to industries and it reduces extra cost. Thus, money is saved and enhances businesses and serves the community. 

Lucky Recycling; a part of Lucky Group, ensures environment sustainability and generates value from waste. To find out more about the wide range of recycling simply contact us today.

From Consumer Goods to Industrial Production - THE MYRIAD USES OF ALUMINIUM

From a leader’s chair to a comfortable garden seating chair; the Aluminum is found everywhere.  Aluminum is one of the most common metals  used in our daily lives either in the form of the chair that we sit on, furniture we use, or the bed that we sleep on- all are widely used with aluminum components for a strong framework. 

Window frames and doors are made of aluminum. Additionally, our cookware, housewares, and home decor accessories are also made up of aluminium. The wide utilization of aluminium in our household objects vouches for the versatile use and the importance of this metal.  

One of the most prominent uses of aluminium is in the form of utensils. Aluminum utensils have an added advantage over other materials due to its light weight, high pliability, resistance and good heat conductivity, and durability. Extremely malleable in nature, aluminium is an ideal metal to be drawn in sheets and be used as foils for covering food. These properties make aluminum a much-favored metal for kitchenware. 

SOME USEFUL TIPS: 

  • Aluminum foil can be used in many different ways. Wrapping aluminium foil around the tip of banana keeps the banana fresh and makes it last longer. 
  • Iron used for pressing clothes can gather rust over a period of time. The rust can be scrapped off by using aluminum foil.  

This ensures optimum utilization of the resource and also promotes sustainability where demand of recycled metal surging rapidly, scrap metal trading is flourishing in Dubai.

We are surrounded by metal works, both inside or outside our houses. Instead of discarding old or broken-down household objects, these should be sent for recycling. 

The metal recycling companies in Dubai recycle the scrap aluminium for various purposes. The multifaceted use of aluminium makes it a high demand metal in industrial as well as household sector. 

However, recycling aluminum is an ecologically beneficial method to cut down the greenhouse gases. Besides, recycling aluminium takes only a tiny fraction of energy as compared to the production of new aluminium. 

Lucky Recycling; a part of Lucky Group, uses advanced and eco-friendly techniques to recycle metals like aluminium. Recycling scrap metal is the cornerstone of an efficacious waste management system and pivotal for creating a sustainable environment.

Have an old car that nobody wants?

Recycling Mantra - Contributes towards sustainability and ensures optimum usage of resources.


So you ended up keeping and maintaining that old car over the years, but now with the new emission norms, it can no longer be driven. That old beauty which you have used down the years has now turned into a beast of burden that nobody wants to buy.

A lot of car lovers get stuck up in such situations where they simply cannot get rid of a vehicle. This can happen over time because they get too outdated or because their maintenance costs increase to a level that they become too expensive to own. Rising fuel costs are not too helpful in such a situation either.

The next best thing that one could do is find another owner or let it just lie there in the parking lot getting covered in dust. After a couple of months, such vehicles eventually end up getting scrapped at the junk yards.

What does one do? If you love the environment, the best thing you could do, is to take your vehicle to a car recycler. Car recyclers are not scrap buyers in Dubai! They are a team of field experts who would disassemble or shred your car completely, in a step-by-step manner. They would either quote you a lumsum price for your car or give you a price for the different parts individually. 

This helps the environment by not discarding the entire car, with all the lubricants, and oils intact, which eventually leak out (including toxic substances from batteries) and damage the environment. Additionally the car owner get better value as well that helps channel the various metals that can be used and helps them reach scrap metal yards in Dubai

Metal scrap companies in Dubai would then segregate the ferrous & non-ferrous scrap metals and re-process them into raw materials suitable for various industries around the world  or melt them into ingots which gets delivered to manufacturers; eventually reaching the production line as a new product.

So the next time you know someone who is about to junk their car, tell them what they could do to help save the environment.
