Scrap Management - materials processed as scrap, destinations, value (or otherwise) etc.

Unwanted donations, semi-processed materials, and waste are processed as scrap by the Hackspace.

Examples of materials processed:

  • Aluminium drinks cans
  • Aluminium old heatsinks, scrap etc.
  • Copper and brass, wire etc.
  • Steel, and miscellaneous metals

When appropriate, quantities of any of the above are collected, they are weighed-in, the (small amount of) money generated being used for purchases for the Hackspace.

Materials not treated as scrap should be sorted into recyclable and general rubbish.

  • Plastics of all kinds
  • Steel food packaging and drinks cans
