Pick up & delivery

Always discrete

Have your workhouse wastes and precious metal scraps refined & recycled by Argentor. Argentor recuperates the precious metals for you. After processing, you can sell your return to Argentor, have it delivered back to you in purified form or deposit it on a metal account.

Refining & recycling your workhouse wastes
Argentor is specialised in the recuperation of gold, silver, platinum & palladium from workhouse wastes. Furthermore, we offer storage jars and tons for your workhouse wastes for free so do not hesitate to ask for these when you are in our office.
 
Workhouse wastes will always have to be refined and analysed first before we can proceed to purchase the material. In case of refining/ purifying workhouse wastes, the material is melted together at high temperature causing all base metals and impurities to be separated from the precious metals. In other words, this method guarantees the most accurate results.
 
We process high as well as low purity workhouse wastes in almost all its forms and alloys:
+ filings
+ polishing wastes
+ moulding wastes
+ shavings
+ work bench wastes
+ production excesses
+ crucibles
+ sand paper
+ brushes
+ vacuum bags
+ floor dust
+ …
 
After processing, you can sell your return to Argentor, have it delivered back to you in purified form or deposit it on a metal account. The bigger the amount delivered, the more cost-effective your material can be processed!
 
We cannot help you with the refining and processing of following materials:
+ gold leaf and/or gold paint
+ gold or silver plated jewellery
+ very low alloys
+ electronic wastes and/or circuit boards
+ liquid solutions
+ toxic or caustic agents

Delivery & handling procedure
1. You deliver the material yourself to our office.
During opening hours, you can always come to our office, without appointment, to deliver your workhouse wastes for refining. Do not hesitate to ask for our free storage jars and tons to collect your workhouse wastes!
 
2. You take a ticket 'delivery refinery' at the kiosk in our waiting room.
Clients who deliver material for refining & processing are always given priority at the counters. That way you won't lose precious time spending waiting for your turn in our office.
 
3. The material is handed over and checked by our employees.
Our employees check - as far as possible - the composition and weight of the delivered materials. You receive a copy of the delivery note.
 
4. If so desired, and if possible, you can ask for an advance.
Based on the composition and weight of the delivered material, we can already buy - if possible - a part of the purified precious metals or deliver them back to you as part of an advance payment. That way your working capital is minimally affected.
 
5. We notify you as soon as your material has been processed.
As soon as the results of refining and analysis are ready, our employees will inform you by e-mail or telephone. You will receive a detailed overview of the results by email.
 
6. Processing of the results.
You can sell your return to Argentor, have it delivered back to you in purified form or deposit it on a metal account. Our employees create the necessary invoices and provide you with a copy for your bookkeeping.
