Opbroek Metal recycling


We distinguish between different types of metal and subspecies; for example copper, aluminum, zinc, stainless steel and the like. All these non-ferrous materials are separated and sorted according to quality and price. This distinction has to do with the availability of the metal.

For the customer it is important to know that the highest efficiency is obtained if the metals are already separated at the source. This limits the number of actions and sortings.


For the processing of iron, a number of actions are performed on the site of Opbroek Recycling. In addition to sorting, operations such as cutting, pressing and burning are performed. The result is a compressed whole that is ready for shipment. In technical terms, people have made it about 'frizzy'. Iron has many different types and variants. Ultimately, this product leaves the site by truck to be transported to the factories.

Cable processing

Cable waste is first scraped and granulated before it can be processed. In this process, the metal components and waste types are also separated from each other.

When processing metal, the latest materials are used to process the scrap into small pieces. These can then be offered directly at the melting furnaces.


Opbroek Recycling has a calibrated weighbridge for weighing incoming and outgoing metal fractions. The weighbridge has a capacity of 50 tons. The reading equipment is located in an office unit directly next to the main gate. The driver who comes to deliver or dispose of always receives a weighing slip for the administration.


The yield of your metal waste depends on various factors. Because we do everything in-house as much as possible with relatively low costs, we can pay the highest possible prices. For specific daily prices you can always contact us without obligation.
