What is Scrap Metal and White-ware Recycling?
Scrap metal is left over from both product manufacturing and consumption. It can include items such as galvanised roofing iron, tyre rims, beams, unwanted pots and pans. Rusted fencing wire is not usually accepted by recyclers, and may go into landfill. Whiteware recycling is also a form of scrap metal and includes unwanted appliances such as washing machines, ovens, fridges, freezers, microwaves and dishwashers and keep these out of the inorganic collection and landfill.The more frequently recycled metals are steel, iron, lead, aluminium, copper and stainless steel and there are two main categories of metals, these are ferrous (contain iron, are attracted to magnets) and non-ferrous.
Appliances processed by Resource Rescue are either sold in Auckland for reuse, or shipped throughout New Zealand to appliance repairers as individual parts.
We work with pretty much all appliances but in particular we focus on:
- Washing machines
- Bread makers
- Free standing ovens
Resource Rescue is a social enterprise established in 2015 and operates in Glen Innes, Auckland.
Our mission is to save appliances from scrap metal, create jobs, and provide low income households with appliances.
