As one of the world's leading metal recyclers, EMR plays a pivotal role in the provision of sustainable materials across the globe.

10 Million Tonnes

With a history spanning 70 years, we have grown from a single UK-based business to a multi-national corporation. Our experience, vast capabilities and commitment to our environmental, social and governance (ESG) values, places EMR among the world's most respected and trusted recycling companies.


We recycle 10 million tons of material annually, made up of everything from beverage cans to oil platforms, which are recycled into more than 200 different types of new, sustainable raw materials.

EMR plays an active role in seeking solutions to global environmental challenges. We consistently work hard to influence government and business leaders imparting our considerable knowledge and expertise in the effort to avoid negative impacts to our climate.

Our commitment to environmental leadership is reflected in our progressive and sophisticated Sustainable Business Strategy. We strive to be the most efficient solution provider for our customers, employees, communities and the environment.

The win-win partnerships we form with our customers and suppliers enable us to share in the value of reducing energy consumption and costs, to create a joint commitment to shared ESG values. This circular supply chain leadership will be crucial in the coming years, as the topic of sustainability becomes an even greater consideration in corporate strategy.


EMR can play a critical part in your company's closed loop business. As such, we are constantly innovating, pushing our capabilities, technology and efficiencies to bring fresh ideas to our customers' waste streams.

We tailor our service around our customers' individual needs, assign dedicated account managers and prioritise exceptional service. We will invest the time upfront to understand a customer's requirements and any challenges they face, using our expertise to provide the most effective solutions.
