Shearing and Baling

Our equipment is configured to achieve the highest recycling and recovery rates possible. Our 500 tonne LeFort baler and shear is able to process 100 tonnes of heavy steel per day. The baler allows processing of high-density steel for delivery to the UK and export companies. We also have a 1,000 tonne mobile LaBounty clever to process oversized materials.

Non-Ferrous Processing

Our state of the art processing equipment allows us to efficiently turnover non-ferrous materials, giving us the ability to offer very competitive prices to all of our customers on any grades of scrap metal.

Total Waste Management

Although our main focus is on scrap metal, we can also provide a complete waste collection, disposal and recycling service. This provides businesses with a cost effective and environmentally friendly way to dispose of all their waste streams.
