FAQs

  • What is the value of the material I want to recycle?

    It is difficult to provide you with an exact figure. When you are contacted by our representative, they should be able to quote you an indicative price, although the aggregate dollars will not be known until it is accurately graded and weighed. Minimum quantities apply for collection events. One of our representatives will discuss this with you when they make contact with you shortly.

  • Will you provide me with a skip-bin free of charge?

    Provision of bins will be dependent on the location, type and quantity of materials for collection. One of our representatives will discuss this with you when they make contact with you shortly.

  • Will the collectors remove steel pipes etc. from walls or fittings or do it all need to be removed?

    All of these items should be left out for collection in an easily accessible location for our service vehicles. If you are unable to move or dismantle something please discuss this with our Customer Service Officer when they contact you to organise collection.

  • Do I get the same amount if a contractor collects my goods?

    All rebates will be discussed with you before a collection event. Rebates will be dependent on the location, type and quantity of materials for collection. One of our representatives will discuss this with you when they make contact with you shortly.

  • Will it be Sims Metal or a contractor that collects the items?

    The collection of your items may be carried out by SIMS directly, or by one of our contracted collectors depending on the suburb of the pick-up and the quantity of items to be collected.

  • Is there a minimum load or will Sims Metal only collect large loads?

    If you only have small items or if you are able to transport recyclable items yourself we recommend that you bring these to our depot as you will receive prompt payment. If you only have a small load and are unable to bring it to our depot we will make a decision regarding collection when we have spoken to you.

  • I have an old car will you collect this?

    Yes, we will collect old cars.

  • Do you collect scrap metal from our residence?

    Yes we do in selected areas, call one of our friendly staff members on 1800 727 276 to see if we service with our free pick up service as some conditions may apply.

  • Do I need to book a time to bring my scrap into your yards?

    No, you can arrive at any time during our opening hours.

  • What is manufacturing scrap?

    Manufacturing scrap is the waste created during the production of manufactured goods, or unused material surplus to the manufacturer's requirements. It includes everything from punched sheets, clippings, defect parts and wire trimmings to obsolete machinery and goods returned under trade-in schemes.
