|Purchased Scrap Specification
Matalco Inc. operates a fleet of over 200 specialized modern light-weight trailers to deliver billet and handle and remove our customers’ scrap. All Matalco’s trailers are tarped, open-top units which are dumped when being offloaded. Scrap delivered in van trailers is forklift offloaded. Please ensure you keep this in mind during the loading process. Accepted scrap materials include bare extrusion, painted, anodized and long scrap, butts, as well as saw chips/fines. A properly loaded trailer can help to maximize the load weight, minimize the number of trailers required to handle and remove the scrap, reduce CO2 emissions, and most importantly, keep our employees safe!
Scrap must be loaded to within a maximum of 8” (inches) from the trailers’ top rail to ensure the tarp systems can clear the scrap while being closed.
Purchased Scrap Specification
NOTE: Trailer loading weight should not exceed 1,000 lbs (454 kg) per linear foot on tandem axle trailers. Multi-axle trailers may be loaded up to 1,500 lbs per linear foot.
