In this era of increasing ecological awareness and the pressing need for sustainability, TWAM is filling a gap in efforts to reduce waste and carbon emissions in the UK. We do this through our extensive tool collection and refurbishment. Our environmental impact is not just a by-product of our operations; it is integral to our mission. We aim to turn waste into opportunity, transforming discarded tools into means of livelihood for communities in need while contributing to the fight against climate change.
Metal sent for recycling
Unfortunately, we sometimes receive tools that are too damaged or broken to be sent to Africa. But we're determined not to let them go to waste!
To ensure that they're put to good use, we sell them to Sackers, our local waste management company. Sackers process all the metal using their fragmentiser, separating it into ferrous, non-ferrous, and waste materials, and then shredding it into small pieces. The resulting shredded steel is sold to customers, melted down, and reused.
We also extract copper from wires and salvage any other metal that we can find.
