Ideal Trading 88cc was founded in 2006 by Wayne Hollard and Jeremy Croxford. We are a young, dynamic company managed by hands-on entrepreneurs using new technology and methods.

What We Do

We are traders of recycled ferrous and non-ferrous metal products. The global recyclable materials industry produces approximately 600 million tonnes of input materials annually. We estimate that the South African recyclable materials industry produces approximately 6.5 million tonnes of recyclable input materials each year.

Recyclable raw materials are sorted according to product type and grade, and then reduced and densified to a variety of recycled products used as input materials in the manufacturing processes of customer. Most of our customers are local manufacturers of products from steel, stainless steel, cast iron copper, lead, zinc and aluminium. The process begins with locating recyclable raw material. This is usually facilitated through delivery by our supplier directly, or by collection and transportation to Ideal Trading 88 cc.

Upon arrival on site, recyclable raw materials is weighed, graded, separated and fragmented. Through this process, recyclable raw material is transformed into recycled products for use by our customers. This allows us to better serve our customers by providing a wider range of products at more competitive prices.
