Hoover and Strong is an SCS Certified Responsible Source. All Harmony Recycled Precious Metals at Hoover & Strong including gold, platinum, palladium and silver are 100% recycled. 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.
We purchase scrap from domestic U.S. customers, giving us a supply of 100% recycled precious metals. The scrap is predominantly in the form of unwanted jewelry, jewelry processing scrap and dental scrap. We then refine the precious metal to make over 30,000 jewelry products including mill products, findings, castings and finished jewelry, all of which fall under Hoover & Strong’s brand of Harmony Recycled Metals.
When it is necessary to obtain recycled precious metals from other sources, we purchase these from other responsible source refineries that supply recycled precious metals. We require any secondary refinery to provide in writing, full disclosure and confirmation that the precious metal supplied to us is from 100% recycled sources.
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 will continue to strive to be the most responsible, eco-friendly refiner in the industry!
