Scrap Solutions are a Geelong family owned and operated business. They are your solution to recycling your unwanted and unused scrap metal. From going into your home and removing your washing machine to clearing a farm of its unwanted scrap metal, the team at Scrap Solutions can handle any job and are even experienced in demolition and removal of large steel structures. Recently Scrap Solutions has had a group of hairdressing salons sign up to their eco-friendly salon community where the aluminium foil and tubes can be recycled to improve the salons’ carbon footprint, as well reduce the amount of waste that goes into landfill. Owner of the business Jackie Matthews has been around the industry since she was young. Her dad has operated a scrap yard in Melbourne for the past 30 years and she would regularly go out on jobs in the truck with him. She officially began working in the industry 18 years ago and launched here in Geelong in March of 2017. She said on a domestic front the service they offer is unique to the region. “We will go into a person’s home and take their scrap metal out for them,” Jackie said. “They do not need to lift a finger as we will do all the lifting and moving for them. “We are genuinely interested in what people want, some residents are reluctant to give up their scrap metal because they think ‘someone might use it one day’ but things like iron gates, outdoor settings, or even fridges and bikes can be given a new life with Scrap Solutions. “We are all about helping the Geelong community to recycle or reuse. If someone has an attachment to an item we will do our best to repair it and either donate it on or resell it for reuse.” Scrap Solutions is fully insured and is also a registered Second Hand Dealer. They cover the Greater Geelong region including the Bellarine, Surf Coast Shire and Golden Plains Shire. Jackie is passionate about doing the best job possible for her clients. While she has a team of trained drivers and removalists, she enjoys going out on jobs to meet with customers and isn’t afraid to get her hands dirty. “I love being able to meet residents and give them an easy solution to manage their scrap metal,” Jackie said. “We love giving people the opportunity to contribute to a One Planet Living lifestyle by offering a service for them to be able to recycle things that may have usually just been thrown out or left cluttering their home.” You’ve got to get rid of your scrap metal – we have your Scrap Solution!!
