STEP 1
SUPPLIER

As a supplier you can sell your zinc or lead waste materials to MCM. You will sent us a sample and we can analyse this sample in our own laboratory. Based on this analysis, we share with you all the useful information and we will provide you a tailor made commercial offer. If we both agree on all the aspects, you will receive a professional contract with all legal requirements and specifications.
