EMR Newcastle - cable granulation

Secure destruction and competitive pricing

EMR is home to the UK’s largest cable granulation facility. We guarantee exceptional service, secure destruction and highly competitive rates for your cable. From this we maintain long-term business relationships with many Blue-chip customers and worldwide cable manufacturers who value the excellent service they receive from EMR. What’s more, the facility has the ISO 14001:2004 accreditation for environmental management and ISO 9001:2000 accreditation for quality management.

Collection or delivery

Loads can be delivered to our facility or we will collect from you and supply lockable containers with seals for storage at your site. Our computerised weighbridges are monitored by CCTV and we can produce still images so you can ensure you receive payment for the full weight of your cable. We can also provide you with Certificates of Destruction and photo/video evidence if necessary.

EMR can handle any cable from Drop Wire to Co-Axial. Upon receipt, the cable is weighed and sampled by our experienced team. This gives us the precise metallic content (within 0.10%) for each load so we can pay you accurately. The material is then graded and sorted ready for the granulation process. We will then supply you an exact outturn advising copper percentages received from each load.
