The scrap industry is one of the oldest industries out there. For centuries, people have bought used or discarded items and repurposed them. Just because the industry is old doesn’t mean the processes have to stay in the dark ages! ScrapGo brings the market closer using the power of the internet and other proprietary technology.

We are changing the way scrap is bought and sold and at the same time making a big difference in the global sustainability effort!
