Metal recycling is a £5.6 billion industry, employing over 8000 people in the UK
The more metal we can
recycle and reuse, the better
it is for everyone.

Recycling metal isn't just an option, it's a necessity
The more we produce and consume in our everyday lives, the more we need to recycle. The same is true in industry – and particularly in manufacturing.
Using recycled metal instead of raw ore is not only environmentally responsible, it also makes financial sense. It costs 70% more to mine material than it does to recycle it and helps to preserve the earth's resources. Recycling also reduces pollution and cuts down industry's CO² emissions.
Legislation is becoming more and more demanding, increasing the pressure on business to manage waste disposal responsibly, with hefty fines in place to ensure compliance. Landfill is no longer a viable, or acceptable, option.
