This study describes the secondary refining process in scrap metal recycling and investigates factors affecting Nigerians from establishing a scrap metal recycling industry, being the brain/muscle behind the growth of existing recycling industries, and their confidence level in handling scrap metal recycling company. A survey questionnaire was used to navigate throughout the research and a total of one-hundred-and-seventy-nine (179) members of staff and workers were randomly sampled for the study. The data obtained were analyzed using percentages. The study distils that factors such as poor government planning, poor education and inadequate exposure of Nigerian metallurgists, amongst others are the major retardants to the growth of Nigerians handling the recycling industry when investors are willing to invest. The findings revealed that Nigerians working in the recycling industry are the brain and muscle behind the industry’s growth. Despite their contributions, peanuts are been given as accolades. Amongst other things, there is a need for a strong magnetic pole to attract investors in the scrap metal recycling industry. Base on my findings, it was recommended that the federal government should create an enabling environment that will encourage investors to support Nigerians in growing their scrap metal recycling industry.
