Abstract: The study was designed to determine the needed improvement in the competency of foundry craftsmen in the recycling of metal scraps in Minna town, Niger state. The study was designed to determine the needed improvements in the competency of foundry craftsmen in the recycling of metal scraps, to determine the possible challenges faced by foundry craftsmen to recycle metal scraps, to determine the strategies that can enhance effective recycling of these metal scraps. Three (3) research questions and two (2) null hypotheses were formulated to guide the conduct of the study. A survey research design was adopted for the study. A total of forty (40) respondents consisting of fifteen (15) master craftsmen and twenty five (25) technical teachers were used as a population for the study. A forty one (41) items questionnaire developed by the researcher and validated by three (3) experts from Industrial and Technology Education Department was used for the data collected for the study. Data collected was analyzed using mean, standard deviation and t-test statistic.The null hypothesis was tested at 0.05 level of significance and 38 degree of freedom. The finding revealed that there is no enough training for the craftsmanship and that many craftsmen don’t have standard machine tools for recycling of metal scraps. Based on the findings, it was recommended among others that regular practical workshop training should be organized by the Government for local foundry craftsmen and the National Directorate for Employment (NDE) and Youth Employment Scheme (YES) should provide more training, certification and soft loans for local craftsmen.
