What is Solder Waste Recycling?

Solder waste recycling is the process of solder and dross disposal. We are a registered solder waste recycling and dross collect company, who have years of experience in the recycling of metals and solder waste. We are one of the few manufacturers of metals who perform our solder waste recycling right here, on site.

We care about the environment which is why our solder recycling service is easy, environmentally friendly, and complies with all regulations. When coming to us for your solder recycling you will be provided with reclamation buckets and instructions detailing what to do. Supplying the dross tins free of charge, we can also arrange collection from your business at no extra cost.

Solder dross is a hazardous product, so needs to be handled, transported, and recycled through the proper authorities. We can collect your dross through licensed waste transport carriers. Our in-house laboratory offers a bath analysis program which is particularly important with lead-free alloys, as the monitoring of copper and lead levels is critical to a smooth running and controlled process.

We know that solder can become contaminated with other metals that are dissolved during the soldering process. The impurities collected throughout this process can affect the physical characteristics and ability of the solder. We can test your samples at our in-house laboratory, once analysed, your results will be delivered.
