How it Works

Recycling Solar Panels

  1. Solar panels are stripped
  2. Solar panels are cut into large pieces and then crushed by a hammer mill.
  3. The glass is moved into containers after washing. For the purpose of recovering metals, rinse water is pumped to a precipitation tank.
  4. We then move on to a specialist partner to finish the glass/metal recycling

Recycling Inverters

High-quality solar inverters have a lifespan of up to 15 years, with ones that are of a cheaper low quality lasting up to 5 years.

These are an essential part of solar panel installation. Once they reach end of life, repair is usually costly, with many not being able to be repaired at all. Here at Cirencester Scrap & Recycling, we are able to recycle any inverters that you may have!
