[caption id="attachment_69" align="alignright" width="276" caption="image credit:"][/caption]

For anyone who wishes to acquire success has to follow some strict rules and regulations. But there are many who assume that there is a shortcut to success. The shortcut to success will only give success for a short period of time. To earn a life long reputation and achievements one has to work hard and follow the rules of success. One such example is Lucky Group.

The company started with two person’s family owned business in 1973. But today after the hard work of 30 years Lucky Group has well established reputation in the global market. The reason behind this incredible success is the ethics which the owners of the company follow. The group eminently values its reputation of honesty, integrity, ethical behavior and high moral standards. They strictly follow all the country and territory laws which are relevant to all over business activities. Definitely different nations have different set of social and political rules, Lucky Group however does mot fail to abide by all the rules and regulations belonging to different countries.

A Few Simple Ways To Reduce Waste At The Shopping Malls

[caption id="attachment_66" align="aligncenter" width="300" caption="image credit:"][/caption]

While the metal recycling companies in Dubai are looking after recycling metals. We can also contribute in some way to decrease the amount of refuses. In my earlier posts I have discussed about shopping malls creating a high amount of wastes. We can take a few simple steps to decrease the amount of wastes.

  1. Carry your own bag: whenever you decide to go for shopping make it a point to take you own bag along with you. This will stop usage of new bags, and reuse is recycling.

  2. Reuse banners and hoardings: The people working at shopping malls should not throw away the banners, hording posters etc. they can be reused for making bags of paper or cloth. Or the cloth can be used as a rug to clean things.

  3. Penalty for wasting food: all the malls should fine people who waste food. They should also be fined if they waste glasses, plates and spoons made of paper or plastic.

  4. Take as required: mall authority should not give away tissues or water bottles in abundance. Keep a check that everyone should get as much as they require.

  5. Recycle centers: whatever amount of waste is gathered should be given to the Recycling center by the authority at the mall.

  6. Promoting recycling: many people visit malls. So they are the right place to educate a large amount of people on the benefits of recycling. If right type of promotion is done for recycling then malls themselves would be benefited.

These are few steps which every citizen of Dubai can follow to reduce wastes. A visit to the Dubai scrap yard will surely convince you to recycle things. Lucky group is one such company who is actively working for recycling metals. Their company is called Lucky Recycling.

Shopping Malls Are Waste Producers

[caption id="attachment_63" align="aligncenter" width="326" caption="image credit:"][/caption]

Dubai is no doubt the fastest developing country in the world. But at the same time Dubai is generating a very large amount of wastes every year. There are many recycling companies who are helping Dubai to be cleaner. One of those companies is Lucky Group.

As we all know Dubai is the shopping paradise and shoppers shop here to their heart’s content. Many shopping festivals are organized throughout the year. Even tourism in Dubai is increasing, during Dubai Shopping Festival more than 2 million travelers visit Dubai. Do you know that these shopping malls and shoppers are one of the causes of rising amount of wastes in Dubai?

  1. You must have observed banners and poster in shopping malls, have you ever thought where do they go when replaced with new ones? Yes, they are thrown into trash.

  2. When we shop the first thing we think of is bags. We use plastic and paper bags while shopping, and throw them away when they are not required. This again increases the level of wastes.

  3. During these types of shopping events there are many different types of cuisines available at different counters. Along with eating a great amount of plates, spoons and glasses made of paper or plastic are wasted. A lot of tissues papers are found in bins which are almost unused. Many times people take food and don’t finish it, resulting into food wastage.

Thus Dubai has become one of the largest waste producers.  Lucky group is a recycler and aluminum alloy manufacturers in Dubai. They have been contributing towards recycling with their company Lucky Recycling. They have two more companies which are: Lucky Alloys and Fortune Metals.

Recycling different waste products is very important. There are many metal recycling companies in Dubai. But this should be done on a very large scale. If only a few of us contribute towards it then it will not benefit the environment as much as it should. It is often observed that in families children waste many things. It is necessary to educate your little ones on recycling benefits.

Advise your children on three things:

  1. Reduce: you can tell your kids to use fewer amounts of things. Not to waste things by taking more in quantity. Don’t buy when they demand for more. Teach them in a playful manner, the art of working with less quantity.

  2. Reuse: most of the kids demand for new things often. Teach them to reuse the same old ones. For example, many kids demand for a new eraser every week as the one they have gets black stains. Teach them how to clean and use the same eraser.

  3. Recycle: most of the kids don’t know how to reuse. They have grown up seeing things used only for one purpose. By making different craft works and projects from using scrap in your house will give them an idea of reusing things.

By teaching your children these three steps you will contribute in recycling process. Everything that we use should be recycled. Lucky Group is the aluminum alloy manufacturers in Dubai.

Batteries are used and thrown away in abundance. A visit to the Dubai scrap yards will show you the picture of how many batteries are thrown in waste. There are many reasons why we must recycle batteries.

  1. Batteries have many poisonous metals in them. They may pollute the lakes and streams. May cause burn to eyes and skin because the metal vaporizes in the air when burned.

  2. Recycling batteries will help in keeping heavy metal out of landfill and the air. The recovered plastic and metal is used for making new batteries.

  3. Mercury oxide and silver oxide button batteries are often collected by jewelers, pharmacies and hearing aid stores.

  4. One should try to use rechargeable batteries so that the wastage of batteries is reduced to some extent.

  5. Older batteries can contain up to ten times more mercury than newer batteries. Rechargeable batteries can also contain heavily toxic materials and should be recycled or properly disposed of.

These are some of the reasons why it is very much important to recycle batteries in a right way. You can go to a recycling center near your house to give away your drained batteries.

Trading in Metal Scrap

One of the easiest ways to earn more money is by scrap metal trading. This not only helps you earn a good extra income, but also lets you help the environment. It is possible to recycle many different metals. You will also be surprised to know that the demand for scrap metal in Dubai has become so high that people land up stealing them from constructions sites, cars and other places. There is a lot of profit involved in this industry. But we must understand that recycling scrap metal can be done in a legal fashion as well.

[caption id="attachment_26" align="alignleft" width="240" caption="Image credit:"]Image credit:[/caption]

The supply of metals is scarce, but by recycling we can not only bring down the scarcity, but also increase the supply. Recycling also saves time, energy, manpower and money. Metals like, aluminum, steel, copper, ferrous, lead and many more can be recycled and each of these quote a different price. The prices of these metals vary on a daily basis. The weight of the metal also determines the price.

Those who decide to get involved with metal scrap companies in Dubai as a part time business soon realize how easy this job is. Even if you don’t want to get involved deeply, you can always trade in the metal items lying around the house that you might have abandoned.

Lucky Group has always been an environmentally active and conscious body. All our practices are streamlined to be ecological in terms of metal recycling in Dubai. Our processing yards are located at strategic locations. Visit our website for more information.

Recycling Copper Scrap

Copper and copper alloys have been recycled since many years.  Recycling copper scrap in Dubai had always been a normal and common economic practice. In the Middle ages, during times of war anything and everything made of copper was recycled to produce cannons.

[caption id="attachment_23" align="alignright" width="250"]Image credit: Image credit:[/caption]

Copper recycling in Dubai is very useful now-a–days as it is used for critical electrical applications like the production of superfine enameled wires, power cables, plumbing tubes, roofing sheets and heat exchangers as well. The presence of the slightest amount of impurities in a cable made of copper can lead to expensive failures and losses. Thus care has to be taken when using copper scrap to see that it is fully diluted with good quality copper.

When copper scrap is already associated with other metals, it is wiser to take advantage of the situation rather than removing the impurities through expensive refining procedures. Thus copper scrap used in this way becomes more economical.

High quality copper can be recycled by a simple process that involves checking, smelting and casting to the finished shape.  If the copper scrap is pure, a high quality product can be obtained from it. The more it is mixed with other metals, the more difficult it becomes to adjust its composition. And when it is contaminated beyond acceptable limits, it becomes necessary to re-refine it.

From scrap metals recyclingto aluminum alloy manufacturing in Dubai, our global company Lucky Group has been adding value to many recycling industries all over the world. Check our website at:

What can be recycled?

[caption id="attachment_34" align="aligncenter" width="462" caption="Image credit:"]Image credit:[/caption]

‘Going Green’ is the need of the hour. As opposed to what we might think, it is not difficult to become eco friendly in our little ways. Lets find out what are the things that can be recycled.

When you say ‘recycle’ most people think glass, plastic and paper. But the fact of the matter remains that almost everything you use can be recycled. Cardboard, paint, electronics, pesticides, rubber tube scrap and metals like aluminum scarp, copper scrap, ferrous scrap, stainless steel scrap, etc. can be taken to Dubai scrap yards and can be recycled. Recycling these items are important for many reasons. One of them is that items such as these contain toxic elements that are hazardous to human and animal health. If waste like this were to be left alone, they would also seep through the soil, polluting our underground water reserves.

It’s easy to find plastic, rubber or metal recycling companies in Dubai online. So the next time, before discarding off unused items, be sure to check for recycling companies or Dubai scrap yards and then go ahead and do the needful.

You can also get creative with being eco-friendly in one more way. Donating your old computer or your mobile to charitable organizations or to those who have none is also a step towards recycling.

Our organization, Lucky Group deals in metal recycling in Dubai but our operations are also located world over. Visit for more information on scrap metals recycling in Dubai.

Why Recycle Rubber?

Image credit:

Rubber started becoming scarce during World War II, which lead to the process of vulcanization being developed. Thus the smart practice of recycling rubber began a long time ago. Consumption of natural rubber decreased during those times. Then by the nineties, the re-use rate of rubber started increasing tremendously. This boosted the rubber recycling industry which has been doing very well ever since. But this does not mean that rubber is being disposed off with care at every point of time.

Believe it or not, rubber tires are the most problematic sources of waste. Leaving rubber tube scrap lying around outdoors in Dubai city, among the garbage or in the scrap yards, is hazardous to the environment we thrive on. Piles of discarded rubber can become breeding grounds for mosquitoes, not forgetting to mention that they become a horrible site. Rubber tires discarded carelessly could even trigger fires. (Let’s nor forget that a fire triggered by rubber is also very hard to curb.) Fortunately, there is more than one recycling technique available to stop this potential hazard from taking place. The various rubber recycling techniques used by recycling companies in Dubai can be used to convert rubber scrap to crumb, viscous reclaim, oils, monomers or energy.

Along with catering to the scrap metal requirements of our customers in Dubai and other countries, Luck Group also recycles rubber tube scrap in Dubai. We serve local as well global needs. You may visit our website for contact details.

Aluminum for Packaging

Gone are the days when a can could only be opened by a can piercer. The pull-tab on beverage cans these days have increased the demand for aluminum packaging. Aluminum is a metal found in abundance in the earths crust. The best aspect of it is that, it is 100% recyclable. You should also know that only 5% out of the total energy used to produce new aluminum is consumed, when it is recycled by a metal recycling company in Dubai.

[caption id="attachment_13" align="alignleft" width="312" caption="Image credit:"]Image credit:[/caption]

Recycling aluminum scrap in Dubai can also be inexpensive especially for the beverage industry. The beverage industry can easily benefit from recycling aluminum only if a plan is devised entailing how to collect aluminum and send it to the aluminum alloy manufacturers in Dubai. But before beginning the process, it is best for industries to find out the current recycling rates as the prices keep on fluctuating. Make a decision on whether it can be done by your own company or is it much more profitable to outsource the recycling and manufacturing work. There are also plenty of local charitable organizations in Dubai that may want to trade in aluminum cans for money.

Our metal recycling and alloy manufacturing company in Dubai called Lucky Group can always help you out with your intentions about recycling metals. Our scrap metal recycling interests are handled by Lucky Recycling and our esteemed associate, Fortune Metals.

The main idea behind this process is to prevent wastage of useful material. Recycling also involves reducing the consumption of fresh raw materials, energy, water, etc. As a citizen of the world, we all must do our part in saving the natural resources as well as the raw materials available today, for a better future.
