The UK Scrap Industry
Metals recycling supplies a major worldwide industry. Despite an economic slowdown and a decline in the steel industry, manufacturing of metals continues to contribute significant value to the UK economy. Last year, 10 million tonnes of metal were recycled in the UK. As the UK produces considerably more scrap than is required for domestic markets, 90 percent was exported worldwide. In fact, the UK is one of the five largest metal scrap exporting countries in the world. According to the British Metal Recycling Association (BMRA), 2019 figures show at least fifteen-thousand individuals are currently employed in the UK scrap industry with a turnover of over £7 billion pounds.
