This is a former site belonging to Sims Metal Australia, an international company that buys and processes scrap metal from businesses, other recyclers and the general public.
They have over 200 processing facilities in the United States, United Kingdom and Australasia. This particular location is vast with many abandoned buildings onsite. Much of the metal waste has been left behind along with mountains of rubbish, waste and piles of sand that is a strange turquoise colour!
Sims Metal is a business division of Sims Limited, a publicly-traded company, with a primary share listing on the Australian Securities Exchange and ADRs tracking in the United States on the OTC Market.
