As part of InfraBuild’s integrated supply chain, we have a global scrap metal footprint.
In Australia, our 21 InfraBuild recycling facilities are supplemented by five sites in regional NSW that operate as Matthews Metal Management – a brand of InfraBuild. Together the 26 sites contribute around 1.4 million tonnes of recycled metals annually into our steelmaking operations.
We are an industry leader in the supply of processed ferrous scrap (steel) products to our domestic steel mills in Sydney and Melbourne. We also have an extensive non-ferrous business that supplies both domestic and international markets with high quality products for recycling.

We have a recycling centre in Hong Kong and a network of scrap metal traders in China, India, South Africa, Spain, the Netherlands and the UK.
