Manufacturing Scrap

Manufacturing scrap is the metal waste created during the production of manufactured goods, or unused material surplus to the manufacturer’s requirements.

It includes everything from punched sheets, clippings, defect parts and wire trimmings to obsolete machinery and goods returned under trade-in schemes.
