The information resource for the secondary materials market

Scrap Collage
We keep you up to date with every aspect of the industry
If you're involved in secondary materials then this site is for you. Whether you are a merchant, processor or transporter of tradeable scrap materials, or associated with these sectors, then our aim is to keep you up to date with all the latest news and information affecting your industry.



Although these days we are an integral part of the waste industry, the focus of scrapPro will always be on the business of secondary materials. That means not only changes in legislation that effect you, but more importantly, we focus on ways to increase profits and reduce costs; afterall, that's what we're doing it for!

We know you're all busy making a living and to save time, we have made it easy finding what you want to know. The most recent articles are listed in the right hand column and below you will find links to our past eNewsletters. To the left is a directory section where you can link to suppliers and services relevant to the business of commercial recycling. Above there is a link to our classified adverts pages which is an ideal place to look for both buying and selling materials and equipment.

Editor Chris Floate
SCRAPpro's editor, Chris Floate.
scrapPro's editor is Chris Floate. Chris has been involved with writing and editing magazines which cover this industry since the mid 1980's. Having a background prior to this in technical writing, Chris took on the editorship of Recycling World in 1987. Like scrapPro, the title was aimed at those individuals and businesses involved in trade recycling. At the time this was mainly scrap metal and vehicle dismantling. During his 14 years, the recycling industry developed from what was very much a financially driven market to the environmentally driven market it is today.

Recycling world was at the forefront of this fast changing and developing market, giving in depth analysis and direction to the growing need for environmental awareness. Whilst still editor of Recycling World, in 1998 Chris took on the editorship of The Landscaper, the leading magazine for the landscape trades.

Over the last 15 years, Chris has also edited the Motor Vehicle Dismantlers' Association and as such has experienced the many changes to our industry first hand. Chris also edits our sister site, atfProfessional which covers the automotive recycling sector.
