The scrap and metal recycling division has its roots in the original John Lawrie business – and it continues to be a key element of the group’s ongoing success.
As the only reprocessor and exporter of scrap metal in the North and North-east of Scotland, the company has established processing facilities in Aberdeen, Montrose and Evanton where they sort, shear and fragmentize scrap metal ready for recycling into new steel products.
All of the company’s metal recycling facilities are fully licensed and, as such, are regulated by the Scottish Environment Protection Agency. This ensures all activities comply fully with strict operating procedures, particularly in the areas of health and safety and environmental protection.
The sustained investment levels in its recycling operations throughout Scotland underline the group’s commitment to providing state-of-the-art processing facilities for both ferrous and non-ferrous metals. This proactive, investment-led approach yields a win-win situation for both the John Lawrie Group and its customers alike.
Great importance is placed by the group on keeping up to date with the ever changing and increasingly complex environmental legislation associated with the metals recycling industry. As active members of the British Metal Recycling Association and with representation on its Legislative Policy Group, the John Lawrie Group keeps itself well informed of current and pending legislation.
