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 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.
