About Us

Independently servicing the metals market since 1978.

Auscon was founded by father and son teams Alwin, Paul, Mark and Michael Williams in 1978 as Kelmscott Recycling Plant. Today, Mark and Paul still head up Auscon. Originally dealing in scrap metal and cars from the company’s automotive recycling arm, Auscon has also moved into waste removal, large-scale demolition and reclamation.

Auscon is also a licensed machinery dealer. Ask us about front-end loaders, heavy-duty equipment, trucks, trailers and light commercial vehicles today.

The scrap, waste and recycling business is a continuously changing environment, where collection methods and the challenges of urbanisation create new demands for collecting and transporting waste and recyclables. We employ the latest tools and tech to get the job done. Auscon’s fleet includes cranes from 8 to 40 tonnes, boom lifts and cherry pickers, front-end loaders and excavators fitted with hydraulic shears and grapples.

Today our mission is to collect, process and trade in metals quickly and easily for a better recycling industry in WA. We’re your one-stop shop for materials clearing, processing and purchase and our fast, local and reliable service is the best you can get.

Auscon has been assisting schools, service clubs and charity organisations to raise funds through metal recycling for more than 25 years.

We work with a range of recreational groups and clubs such as the RSL to raise money through the collection of aluminium cans. Auscon has also worked with the Lions Club of Three Springs to raise thousands of dollars through collection and sale of farm scrap, batteries and old car bodies.

We’ve had an active partnership in Southern Cross to raise funds for the volunteer fire brigade, local football club and local school for the last 10 years. We also work with a number of schools closer to home to implement metal recycling and small-scale container schemes to facilitate school fundraising.

Auscon is always happy to provide advice about the best ways to set up a metal recycling fundraising program.
