Increase in Self Storage Facility – An Opportunity for Scrap Material Recyclers

Real estate is a cherished possession, especially in a country like UAE. Self-storage facilities in the country are no exception. More and more residents in the country are opting for renting the storage facilities space. This has made it a booming industry in the country. On an average, 10 square feet space can cost around AED 300 per month (https://www.selfstoredubai.com/en/prices/prices.aspx). 

According to many studies, people rent out these spaces for longer periods of time and use it to store items they do not want to part with. These items, while being locked-in and not used as frequently, holds more value for the owners and the economy – by offering scrap material for recycling; particularly scrap metals. It is a niche that offers a rewarding opportunity for scrap recyclers in the nation. 

So, what makes metal recycling in demand today? There is an ever-growing need for scrap metal. The benefits of scrap metal recycling are well known – it benefits the economy and the environment while conserving the depleting natural resources by reducing the need to mine for virgin metal ores. Not only it is economical, but it is also the need of the hour. 

While mining for metal ores and processing the metals is a time consuming and prolonged process, recycling the already-existing metal is a much simpler, quicker, and smarter alternative. A country like UAE has highly developed and modern infrastructure that is ever growing to keep up with the technology and uses huge amounts of metals in the process. This has in turn helped in increasing the employment in the sector. 

Recycling metals does not only help in creating huge infrastructures and big appliances, it is used in our day to day items like smart phones, window frames, stationary clips, etc. The raw material (recycled metals) costs a fraction compared to using virgin metals in these instances. The metals that are not recycled or not disposed properly end up in landfills. Other than pollution, the toxic chemicals in these metals pose an alarming threat to soil health, wildlife, ground water, and even humans. 

For those with self-storage facilities, it is worthwhile to check the materials stored and segregate the metal components for efficient recycling. Not only does it bring monetary gains, but also the pride and satisfaction in doing their bit in helping the planet.

A strong economy like UAE has a tight housing market – hence, people are settling for self-storage facilities. The market in UAE for self-storage facilities is growing as well as the scrap yards in its major cities, like the scrap yards in Dubai

How does metal recycling benefit  the environment? – does it provide any monetary benefit? What can we do to ensure optimum recycling benefits?

Metals are found in metal ores that are extracted through mining. These ores are found in untouched landscapes. Mining entails destruction of the natural ecosystem – recycling helps in reducing the mining to a great extent. This helps in conservation – of the landscape as well as the habituating wildlife.

The metal recycling sector has provided thousands of individuals with employment opportunities. With the growing metal recycling companies in UAE and scrap metal trading in the country, the sector has been contributing to the economy significantly.

Recycling metals offer both economic and environmental benefits. Metal is produced and used in abundance on an industrial level including household where metal is used in our day-to-day life. Recycling does not only help in de-cluttering, but also a source of additional revenue. However, lack of experimental metal knowledge and its handling will results losses. Below are the three costly mistakes to avoid while picking up the scrap metals: 

Choosing the right recycling company

The most efficient way of ensuring the used metal is recycled to its fullest is by choosing the most capable, professional and energy efficient recycling company. Many companies offer scrap pick-up, however, these companies may or may not have the required specialization or license to recycle the metals. Also, many companies that offer free pickup do not recycle the scrap themselves, and merely act as an agent to make profits. 

Lucky group specializes in metal recycling using energy efficient and environment-friendly methods. It leads among the recycling companies in UAE for its recycling abilities.

Looking for the best prices

One of the most common mistakes made in picking up scrap metal is by the seller does not do their research about the scrap market trends. Usually, a seller trades the scrap metal with the first scrap yard they come across. Scrap metal prices fluctuate from time to time. Some metals fetch more value than the others – it also depends on which metal recycling company in Dubai the seller opts for. Some companies charge huge amount for removal and segregating scrap. The seller ends up making a meagre or sometimes makes zero profit. It is always a great idea to compare prices offered and research about the services offered, for example, free on-site certified weighment, swift on-site segregation, and free collection also prompt payment before finalizing the most profit-earning option. If you need any assistance, contact our expert team at info@luckygroup.com who will assist you to get the most lucrative value for your metal scrap.

Segregating the metal scrap before the pickup

Segregation is crucial for recycling for various reasons. Different scrap metals have different values. If the scrap metal is not separated properly, one might not get the best price. Moreover, the recycling process could also take longer. The seller should segregate the metal scrap according to their types and grades. Not only will it help them to get the better price, but also make the recycling process faster. 

Recycling is a diligent job. On industrial level, time is truly of an essence. It is important to find a recycling company that offers flexibility and meets the scheduling requirements of the seller. Lucky Recycling recognizes this need of the seller and offers not only the best price on the scrap metals, but also maintain scheduling flexibility.

Recycling scrap metals is the key to reducing mining throughout the world. Recycling scrap metal helps in reducing the amount of waste going into landfills.

Dubai scrap trading market is one of the most profit-earning industries to trade scrap metals. A farmer, or other individuals involved in trading business should be aware of the metals and its value according to its grading. 

Farm machineries including tractors and other equipment’s used in farming contain different grade of metals. Some farm equipment that was made around a decade back contains a lot more metal in weight as compared to the modernized equipment manufactured recently.

Higher the weight of metal scraps, greater the value one gets in its return. Many of us are not aware that instead of letting this old equipment placed around in corner and gather dust and occupy space, these can be used for generating revenue. Some of the examples of the most popular obsolete farm machineries that can be trade-off like Hog oilers, threshing machines, engines and engine parts, steam tractors, flails, winnowing machines, used tractor parts, ploughs, combines, etc. Additionally, old farm tools, obsolete or damaged equipment’s, old metal storage sheds that are in need of replacement, etc. are also some good examples. 

Farming is a tough job, that is unfortunately not excessively monetarily rewarding but recycling farm metal scraps not only helps in generating revenue but also helps in creating more space for ongoing projects, decluttering helps in creating safer workspace for farmers and other workers, comfort and pride for farmers in knowing that in addition to producing food for the rest of us, they are also contributing in helping the planet.

Is Disposing Trash in one bin Cheaper than Segregating it?

We are sure this question must have popped up in your mind at least once; “is it really worth segregating all my trash?” If you love the environment, then you probably would not need a valid reason. Else, if you are one of those who would simply recycle because the law forces you to, then this thought would have definitely come across your mind, every single time you sat down to segregate your daily trash.

Recycling can be simply defined as the process in which used materials can be processed into new products to prevent the waste of the remainder, while reducing the consumption of virgin materials for producing other new products. Simply put, it is environmentally good to recycle. “But isn’t disposing trash together in one garbage bag cheaper?” one may ask.

Just in case you are not aware about this, but it is a fact that landfills, worldwide are filling up—and fast. The worldwide population is rising to unprecedented levels and there is no space to get rid of the trash that we generate on a day-to-day basis. This is where we come back to your question; to which the answer is a big ‘NO’. Governments and municipalities worldwide are paying large sums of money for getting rid of humongous amounts of waste into landfills. 

Some people would say “why don’t we simply sort things out instead of dumping them in and then sorting everything out?” well that is because we as human beings lack the initiative to do the same. If all of us segregated our trash there would be no need to open up landfills as only organic waste would land up in there. Governments spend enormous amounts of funding on garbage recycling facilities only because the people would simply refuse to segregate different types of recyclable items thus they do find their way back to the Metal Recycling companies in Dubai for their valuable waste metals.

Recycling at home, kills the problem from the root, segregating trash at its origin; and is right about the best thing one can do to save this planet. After all it is we who are stuck here on the third rock from the Sun; and there is—as of today—no other place to go.

Urban miner, the Lucky Group’s experience and association with multiple countries in the Middle East helps the environment in getting rid of all the scrap metal while reducing the need for mining which damages our beautiful planet. Lucky Recycling is known for metal recycling and giving the best product out of it also it is an active and conscious body that provide help not only to the surrounding market but also to the international market.
