Metal recycling

World leader in metal recycling

In the Netherlands, some 400 companies are involved in the metal recycling industry. These companies represent a joint turnover of around 7 billion euros.  
In the Netherlands, a large number of metals are collected for recycling purposes. These metals include: 

  • Lead
  • Zinc
  • Copper
  • Tin
  • Platinum
  • Aluminum
  • Stainless steel
  • Nickel
  • Iron

All of these materials are recycled in eco-friendly ways to prevent them from harming the environment. Moreover, a substantial part of the used metals is exported to countries inside or outside Europe for further processing.  

The Metal Recycling Federation (MRF) 

The Metal Recycling Federation (MRF) is the main branch organisation for the metal recycling industry. With over 160 members, this association represents 85% of the total volume within the trade. The MRF is aimed at promoting eco-friendly and cost-effective recycling of used metals in the Netherlands.
