Waste Management

Metalco Ltd. is a manufacturing organization whose major classification is the recycling of non ferrous metals, paper shredding and cable stripping. As one of Malta's largest recyclers of scrap metal, we collect, process and recycle nonferrous metals (such as aluminum, copper, stainless steel, nickel, brass, tin and others).

We make it easy and cost-effective for our suppliers of raw scrap to dispose of their materials in an environmentally responsible manner. We process our scrap metal by sorting, shearing, shredding and baling. Our facilities contain an array of processing equipment such as fixed and mobile shears and balers and loading equipment such as material handlers and conveyors. We transport processed scrap to customers in Europe and other countries primarily via ships. As part of our commitment to being a very efficient, low cost scrap processor, we are constantly investing in improvements to our facilities to increase our capabilities and efficiency while reducing our environmental footprint.

We purchase a wide variety of non-ferrous and ferrous scrap metal. Our suppliers range from the common peddler to some of the largest producers of scrap metal in Malta. This said, we purchase almost any kind of scrap metal, particularly in large quantities.
