Metals and cables


  • Ferrous metals
  • Non-ferrous metals
  • Cables made of non-ferrous metals enclosed in plastic

Over 35% of the world’s copper production comes from recycling. By 2030, fossil resources in zinc, copper and lead will be extinct. Fortunately, metal recycling has no end.


SITA is the top metal and cable recycler in France and actively participates in compensating for the lack of natural resources by offering its client recovery options.

SITA collects ferrous and non-ferrous sources before transforming them to supply substitute raw materials to steel plants, refineries and foundries. The products can be supplied as chips, briquettes, packets or tailings, depending on the clients’ needs.

Ferrous metals can find a second life in the flat and long steel industry as steel wire.

Non-ferrous metals are recovered in transformation plants for semi-finished products, foundries and refineries.

Cables are recycled and sold to cable manufacturers and extruders.
