SCS Certified Harmony Recycled Metals
All Harmony Recycled Precious Metals at Hoover & Strong including gold, platinum, palladium and silver are 100% recycled. When it is necessary to obtain recycled metals from other sources, we buy metal from other responsible, earth-friendly refineries that, like us, only use recycled metal. We require any secondary refinery to provide in writing, full disclosure of their metal sources. To verify and confirm our use of 100% recycled metals, we are audited every year by SCS Global Services, a globally-recognized independent third-party certifier and sustainability expert. The SCS certification verifies that all Harmony Responsible Metals are indeed 100% recycled.
We are very proud to have been audited and granted renewal certification every year to date, however this year things have changed. Due to the growth nature of our business, there is a small percentage of our product range that we can no longer source from recycled sources. Starting November 1, 2018 we will no longer be SCS Recycled Content Certified as a company, however our Harmony range of recycled precious metal products remains 100% recycled and has been certifed by SCS Global Services to be so.

Hoover & Strong has been refining precious metals for over 106 years and we pride ourselves on utilizing environmentally-friendly refining techniques that always exceed federal, state and local environmental regulations.

This certification confirms our ongoing commitment to the environment and to our customers who demand raw materials that are ethically sourced with minimal environmental impact. We continue to receive the SCS Responsible Source Certification every year for our range of Harmony Metals. We are proud to have earned this SCS Certification and we will continue to strive to be the most responsible, eco-friendly refiner in the industry!
