Us & Our Approach

We’ve been described as ‘The new kid on the block’ or ‘the one to look out for’, Mettalis is new, fresh, and ambitious and we’re looking to grow. “It’s all about team work” says MD Tom Bird; “our management team has a wealth of business experience both from within and outside of the scrap metal industry, and a real passion for building lasting relationships with our suppliers and customers both at home and abroad”.

Although we’re not the biggest we like to think that we’re the best at what we do, to this end we work diligently to maintain our hard-earned reputation for honesty, integrity and fair dealing. In addition we have a strong commitment to the environment and to giving our employees, visitors, suppliers and customers a safe place in which to work and trade.

We recognise that businesses either grow or they contract, but they never stand still. Our short-term strategy is to grow the company- our long term strategy is to grow it even more! From the beginning we have invested heavily in our core business enabling us to achieve considerable organic growth. Alongside this, our recent acquisition of the bulk of the UK operations of Dutch recycling company Van Dalen, has boosted our business considerably and added sites at Immingham on the River Humber in Lincolnshire, at Sheffield in Yorkshire and at South Shields on the banks of the River Tyne to our existing UK presence.

We’re also looking for partners, companies who want to move their businesses forward but may not have all of the necessary skills and funding to achieve their ambitions. Being an independent part of a larger group can provide owners with substantial economies of scale and considerable trading benefits.

If you would like to find out more about the benefits of a partnership with Mettalis Recycling, please call Tom Bird on 01709 560200.

The Environment

In a throw-away world efficient recycling is becoming ever more important for a sustainable future.

As well as cost advantages and preventing waste going to landfill sites, recycled metals are far more efficient to process because they consume less energy and less water and CO2 emissions are reduced as opposed to using finite raw materials.

We focus on collecting waste metal, turning as much of it as we possibly can into top-grade re-usable material, then selling it to customers around the world. In doing so, we aim to be environmentally safe and responsible in every aspect of our business.

We are not content simply to comply with the relevant legislation, we are continually investing in our sites, vehicles and plant to ensure that we operate to the highest possible environmental standards and our employees, visitors, suppliers and customers have a safe place in which to work and trade.

Scrap Metal Dealers Act 2013

In 2013 the Government introduced the Scrap Metal Dealers Act. This legislation covers England and Wales.

The main provisions are:

All mobile and site-based scrap metal dealers and motor salvage operators must have a licence in order to trade. There are two types of licence, a site licence and a mobile collectors’ licence. Both types are issued by local authorities, although mobile operators need a separate licence from each local authority where they collect.

The Act also incorporates the Cash Ban introduced in December 2012. This now extends to motor salvage operators and mobile collectors. We have a range of ways to pay you:

  • Cheque
  • Bank transfer
  • Mettalis Recycling cheques which can be cashed on site

Site-based operators, motor salvage operators and mobile collectors must verify the identity of anyone selling scrap to them.

Acceptable photo IDs:

  • Valid UK Passport
  • Valid UK Driving Licence
  • Valid EEA Passport
  • Valid UK Biometric Immigration Document

If the photo ID does not show your current address you must also bring a proof of address which must be less than 3 months old when the scrap is received.

Acceptable documents showing proof of address:

  • Bank/Building Society statement
  • Credit/Debit card statement
  • Council Tax statement or letter
  • Utility bill – but not a mobile phone bill

Please make sure we have a copy of your current ID.
