Owning a scrap metal recycling business is like having your company traded publicly the day it opens for business.

Metals are commodities and the price fluctuates on a supply and demand basis, often based on forecasts for the supply and demand for certain types of metals a year or more in advance.

Overall, this is a good choice for a recycling business start-up, and the investment can vary from a few thousand rands to hundreds of thousands of rands.
