Metal

Metal is one of the largest recycling sectors with 400 million tonnes recycled every year. For this reason, we strive to ensure that this material is collected, transported and recycled correctly.

Regardless of your industry, be it Transport, Construction or Retail for example, we are experienced in separating metal waste to maximise the recycling rates for this material. We are committed to working with businesses of all types and sizes to provide tailored solutions, minimise disposal, reduce costs and positively impact environmental compliancy and well-being for everybody.

If you are a Bristol based business, we can support you in collecting your metal to boost your recycling rates. We can provide you with Skips, RoRo’s and other specialist containers – You can see what these containers look like here.

What will we do with your metal?

Once collected by our sustainable trucks, your metal is taken to the local processing plant whereby, using the latest technology, it is separated. The metal elements are melted and treated to make new raw materials. Once completed, the recycled metal is used in the production of a new product. Metal that cannot be reused or recycled will be disposed of correctly. The rebates obtained for the material are always passed on to our customers, creating a valuable income stream to go back into your business.
