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!!
