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.

Scrap Business Ethics

The world of metal recycling depends on scrap metal businesses to locate, collect and process various metals for further consumption by manufacturing facilities. By operating a scrap metal business, a business owner can make a positive impact on the environment by diverting waste from landfills thus contributing to the economy and environment.  

Like any other organization, scrap businesses also require rules and regulations but additionally it is also important to have business ethics. By virtue of ethics, these are a set of principles in which the company operates based on integrity, honesty and loyalty.

The primary function of the scrap metal business is to procure scrap metals and while dealing with the scrap materials, the metal scrap yards in Dubai should ensure that the source of the material should be reliable and legal. 

Dubai scrap trading companies should ensure to purchase all materials legally and supply it to trustworthy recycling companies in UAE

Air quality & its link to Covid-19

For healthy homes & work environments, it is crucial   to improve its air quality especially where the whole world is in a health crisis due to COVID-19 and taking maximum precautions.

Improving wellness while staying at home or at work during this disruptive situation is the most relevant discussions everywhere. It is recommended by experts to maintain a balanced and healthy lifestyle specially who are sensitive to allergens or have a respiratory underlying issues to prevent COVID-19 infection. .

Experts advice that during this pandemics we must attempt to breathe fresh air or purify our domestic air quality. Cleaning your AC filters is one of the ways to improve indoor air quality which can help in avoiding serious illnesses.  You can, however, do certain cleaning and maintenance tasks yourself to ensure efficient operation.  If you don’t, then the air flow will be restricted, reducing efficiency and you will recirculate dust into your home or at work which will  affect your overall health system and may cause asthma or may cause  difficulty in breathing or similar respiratory issues.

Also, if you don’t do this maintenance before summer arrives, you may end up with higher amount of service charges to be paid.

Have we ever noticed why Air conditioners cost so much more to cool down a house or work place because the purpose of the air conditioner is to remove heat from the air and vent it outside? One of the components of an air conditioner that allows it to do this are the condenser coils in also known as radiators.

An air conditioner condenser coil is made up of copper tubes and aluminum fins which help in circulating cool air through those tubes freely and it is important that these condenser coils must be maintained and kept clean.

As a homeowner if you see your AC is not working and it is the time to replace with new then you should remove important components from your AC like condenser coils, compressor, wires, iron and others components which needs to be disposed-off at the dedicated recycling center.

Lucky Group has facilitated at their Dubai scrap yards for proper recycling of scrap metals such as air conditioners.

You may also approach metal scrap companies in Dubai for free disposal at their doorstep.

Safety Precautions in Waste Management and Recycling

Social distancing has kept us away from our loved ones due to COVID-19 but telecommunication during this outbreak has made it possible to remain connected at any time throughout the globe.

We have already seen businesses, schools, and other organizations advising their employees to work from home and students to stay home or use online learning to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus.

However, from employees and student’s point of view do they all have adequate facility at home to work remotely?  Are their internet speeds fast enough? Because the whole world is trying to connect at the same time.  Is their network secure? 

IT departments are connecting communities during this challenging time and providing maximum facilities and cyber securities for all the remote users.

But on the other hand, it is also necessary to update ourselves either you are working from office or home.  This is a good time to evaluate your devices and discard the unwanted or out-dated devices which may affects ROTI (Return on time invested) during this outbreak.

Recycling is a good option if your device is damaged and cannot be reused or sold. But if you are planning to recycle out-dated devices your, IT department always look for recycling companies in UAE which provides the best solution to recycle your products.

Segregating useful scrap metals from surplus stock of material might look easy, but it’s not. These days scrap metals yard in Dubai need to be extra cautious due to the economic, social and health impact of the Coronavirus. 

Wash your hands for twenty seconds before and after handling of scrap metals because metal elements can enter the body through inhalation of dust.  Lucky Recycling ensures that all of their team members and valuable suppliers follow proper hand hygiene practices, use of masks and gloves in order to beat the deadly virus together.  

Protection is the best cure.

GOOD NEWS FOR BEGINNERS STUDENT’S KNOWLEDGE OF SCRAP METALS RECYCLING

If you are student and want to have basic knowledge of scrap metals and it’s recycling then you don’t need to be a metallurgist, only you need to know the common metals which are used for re-purposing scrap metals into new products. Recycling companies in UAE, in collaboration with Scrap metals yards in Dubai, offers a wide range of technical and identification methods to segregate different types of metals fast.  

But on the other hand scrap metals knowledge with little expertise may help you in getting additional pocket money and will also save your time if it has been properly segregated before delivering to Metal recycling companies in Dubai.

But the question is how it is possible?

Do you know in scrap who is your best friend?  A “magnet”. An important tool which helps you in distinguishing between ferrous and non-ferrous metals.

Now before learning how we can use the magnet for ferrous and non-ferrous metals, it is very important to understand the difference between ferrous and non-ferrous metals.

What is a ferrous metal?

Steel and Iron both come under this category available in hangers, washing machines and other household items.

What is a non-ferrous metal?

Other than steel and iron most other metals are non-ferrous like very common metals such as aluminium and copper found in electrical wires and window frames.

How we can use the magnet to identify which metal is ferrous or non-ferrous?


  • If the magnet sticks, you have a ferrous metal.
  • If the magnet doesn’t stick, you have a nonferrous metal.

So, if you don’t have magnets buy a small one and attached with your keychain, so it may not be misplaced.

If you want to know the value of scrap metals collected in-house or at schools, Dubai scrap yards will decide how much they will pay you for whatever type of metal you bring.

Safety is our first priority, so if you handle scrap metals, handle with care by wearing protective gloves because most of the metals have sharp edges or other contamination which may affect your health and safety.

Are Rare Earth Metals Important to Recycle?


In today’s world, automobiles and electronics seem to be a very crucial part of one’s life. With the advent of technological progression, one has become more and more reliable to these consumer goods. 

Often, we neglect a group of elements called rare-earth metals.  Their unique magnetic, heat-resistant and phosphorescent qualities make them essential in production of daily used products like electrical, smart phones, LCD TV displays, cars engines, cameras, and other technology which require rare-earth elements to function.


Most often these products are taken for granted and can be seen in bulk quantity in Dubai scrap yards. Although they are pivotal in the appliances we use every day.

Rare-earth elements also have a significant burden on the environment. Processing these metals are not only difficult but hazardous to the environment when its extract.  

Presently, the main roadblock to recycling rare-earth metals is the cost required to purify the mixtures obtained from consumer devices. 

Though scientists are still researching ways to recycle rare-earth metal, one way to approach is to reuse the old electronics and reduce the demand for the rare -earth metal.  

So, it is advisable is to invest appropriately in the products that contain rare-earth metals to protect the environment the environment. In times like these, metal recycling companies such as Lucky group that manages their facility to protect the environment and spread awareness about harmful impact on  human life.

Why should we recycle electronics?


The whole world is now taking steps towards plastic recycling, so much that this has now become a buzzword. However, we are still quite resistant when it comes to recycling electronics items. We can find thousands of cars and household items being stashed, but can’t find that many electronic products in Dubai scrap yards. It is noteworthy that there are several metal recycling companies in Dubai, such as Lucky group, which can buy valuable metals derived from the process of electronics recycling.

We waste a lot of energy and resources to make a new electronic product. So, recycling of electronic items can save energy as well as valuable resources. It will also significantly reduce the carbon footprint that is associated with the manufacturing process of electronic items. Moreover, recycling these products will also effectively prevent electronic wastes to go into landfills.

There are some approved recycling companies in Dubai that can effectively extract the metals from electronic items. You can also obtain commercial value by selling these valuable metals to scrap metals trading companies. Besides the financial aspect of recycling, you can also make your significant contribution to a better tomorrow by taking part in electronic recycling.


Educate viewers about waste recycling through global media

According to some researchers, it is argued that humans tend to remember visuals seen on a screen rather than the words read in a text. Have you ever wondered why is the case? Because visual media helps retain concepts and ideas. Research suggests that people learn more easily when the information is presented in a visual form.

Educating waste recycling through media sources like movies or documentaries offers both intellectual and effective experiences to live sustainable life style.

From animated short movies to a film about waste landfills, there are many documentary films that will force anyone to watch about their waste and how to make better use of it.

Like Trashed, 2012, this film concludes by highlighting zero waste initiatives around the world as well as cities pushing for mandatory recycling and composting programs.

In order to live sustainable and waste free life style there are now several metal scrap companies in Dubai operating in the Dubai scrap trading sector, who will buy those metals for the purpose of reuse which we trash into landfills or at trash drums.

Through the recycling process, we get several other valuable metals, such as Aluminum and Copper that belong to non-ferrous metal categories. Companies that buy these valuable metals, besides the stainless steel scrap in Dubai, these metals also fetch more money than the ferrous metals as they are way costlier.

Also there are many other companies available that buy ferrous scrap in Dubai which are ranked in giving high quality services to their customers in improving the environment for better living quality life.
