Why recycle with us? We say you can’t afford NOT to.

First of all, scrap metal is valuable. Earth’s resources are limited and scrap is a coveted commodity. Not only is it good for the environment by reducing CO2 and saving energy, but it is also good for your bottom line for the exact same reasons.

Efficient recycling requires optimization of all relevant processes. Our long experience and expertise enables us to develop and implement a tailor-made plan for you. As a reliable and competent partner, we will help you save costs and ensure an easy process of implementing recycling.

Contact us and let’s calculate what recycling can mean for your business and for the environment.

What do we buy?
All types of scrap and metals. This includes ferrous grades, such as iron and steel and non-ferrous grades and alloys such as aluminum, brass, copper, lead and stainless steel. We also buy materials such as cables, WEEE articles and alloyed residues.

As a recycling company with many years of experience, we know that maintaining a high quality is crucial. Since quality is a key factor, all incoming material, particularly stainless and alloyed scrap, is subject to a careful treatment and processing, in order to optimize the quality according to the standards of our customers. Great care is taken to ensure all contamination and foreign inclusions in the scrap are removed, particularly radioactive materials. Therefore, all material leaving the terminal has been checked twice for radioactivity (once on entering and once on leaving the facility). In addition, it is checked during sorting by our personnel, measuring radioactivity manually and by radioactivity detectors on excavators.

We buy from a wide range of sources; scrap metal merchants, construction and demolition contractors, local trades and businesses, manufacturers, government bodies etc. We buy any amount, from contracts of thousands of tonnes to small individual deliveries.

Although prices fluctuate according to the worldwide markets, we guarantee you that RIMECO is always highly competitive on prices, compared to other recyclers.

Secure destruction of any cable
At RIMECO, we take pride in guaranteeing you an exceptional service and secure destruction at highly competitive rates.

There is no type of cable RIMECO cannot handle. Our experienced team weighs and samples the cable, determining the precise metallic content (within 0.10%) for each load, along with the grade.

Loads can be delivered to our facility in Aabenraa, DK. Our computerised weighbridges are monitored by our RecySysted. And should you require it, Certificates of Destruction and photo/video evidence can be provided.

Our facility has the ISO 14001 accreditation for environmental management and ISO 9001 accreditation for quality management.

Waste Electronic and Electrical Equipment (WEEE)
Specialist processing is required to safely remove specified substances from electrical equipment and recover more materials for recycling.

At RIMECO, we do just that. We have the right equipment and the right staff to operate environmentally responsible in compliance with the law.

Customized solutions for the win
As a major economic stakeholder in the market for the recycling of industrial waste, RIMECO is committed to the concept of circular economics.

We focus on research and customized solutions for the detailed extraction of non-ferrous metals from “earths” (fraction from 0 to 15mm) coming from shredding residues. The numerous tests performed have allowed us to recover up to 10% of the metals in this fraction.

Data Destruction Services

End-of-life IT assets contain sensitive data and confidential information, intellectual property, customer lists, trade secrets, accounting information, payroll records or credit card information. If this information is compromised, your company’s reputation is at risk.

RIMECO offers data destruction solutions to destroy data on magnetic, solid state and optical media for small and large projects.

Data Destruction Services at RIMECO Location in Aabenraa, Denmark
RIMECO guarantees complete digital data destruction services and provides Certificates of Data Destruction and Certificates of Recycling as required.

100% guaranteed data destruction

Bulk and Witnessed Data Destruction
RIMECO uses clearly defined processes, guided by industry and government standards to make certain all digital data is destroyed. Our audited processes provide peace of mind, accountability and assurance that your company’s privacy and corporate reputation remain intact. Certificates of Data Destruction provided.


Any data-bearing media that our clients do not want to reuse or resell is physically destroyed. RIMECO uses state-of-the-art, high-capacity shredders to destroy all data-bearing media. The entire hard drive, including platters is shredded into small pieces making it impossible to reconstruct the media or data.

Data Erasure
All shredded materials will pass extremely strong magnetic fields, which ensures a secure destruction of all data-bearing media.

Witnessed Destruction
Some situations require that clients physically witness the destruction of the electronic media. RIMECO can accommodate this witnessed destruction of hard drives and storage media by hosting the client at our processing facility. Alternatively, witnessing can be facilitated by providing a webcam link to witness the destruction remotely. We also can provide video recording of client hard drives being destroyed. Our witnessed hard drive destruction is useful for our clients to verify their media is destroyed and, in some instances, their hardware is destroyed under our brand protection services.

Certificates of Data Destruction
Certificates of Data Destruction can be provided, regardless of the service provided – data erasure, hard drive shredding or witnessed destruction.
