It specializes in ferrous and non-ferrous metals recycling, post-consumer electronic goods recycling, and municipal waste recycling. Founded in 1917, its primary operations are located in the United States (where it is now headquartered), Australia (where the company was founded and its stock listing remains), and the UK.

Sims Metal Management operates a geographically diverse network of metal processing facilities, with numerous deep-water port access, supported by an extensive network of feeder yards that source recyclable ferrous and non-ferrous metals.

Sims Recycling Solutions (SRS) is the company’s electronics recycling division. This includes product de-manufacturing and processing operations, and commonly is referred to as e-recycling. SRS offers comprehensive and cost-effective recycling services for “end-of-life” and redundant electrical and electronic equipment and materials, ranging from product assessment to recycling.

SRS has 42 facilities operating globally offering a range of services including the collection, refurbishment and re-sale of working equipment, parts recovery for resale, mechanized testing and processing of monitors, mechanical recycling of e-recycling and secondary smelting and refining of high grade electronics by-product materials.

The energy savings generated by Sims Metal Management were in excess of 14.3 million MWh, enough to power around 4.3 million average households. Saving this energy also prevented the emission of 15.2 million metric tons of CO2 to the atmosphere, equivalent to that absorbed by 15 million trees over a 100-year life span.
