We want you to feel safe and secure in your dealings with EMR. Put your trust in us to manage your materials securely through the recycling process.


Often our customers provide materials that need special processing in order to destroy intellectual property or for other sensitive reasons.

We have both the processes and the experience to provide confidential destruction services to a range of business sectors. For example, we can use our shredders, shears and balers to shred, cut and crush materials to destroy them. We can even coordinate the collection of these materials and process them upon delivery. If on-site destruction is required, we can also provide a mobile shear or baler to crush and cut the material before removal from site.

Following destruction, we can provide certificates of destruction and can record the process on our CCTV systems, supplying a copy of the images if required. Some customers prefer to attend (by arrangement or unannounced) and witness the destruction taking place.

We have also provided destruction services for many years to vehicle manufacturers and organisations such as the military and police forces.


To keep your materials secure at your site and in transit, all our containers are security tracked. We also offer lockable pallets and security tags for low volume, high value material.


On receipt at any EMR depot, all loads are weighed and the details electronically recorded. In addition, we have comprehensive recording CCTV systems in place around our depots, particularly at the scale and office. This provides an auditable record of each transaction. Every purchase of material is also captured via digital camera, its image stored in our internal management system.

All our scales are modern electronic bridges linked into our internal management information system. This bespoke system, developed in-house, is a key part of our success, providing the accurate, real time control of material inventory and values necessary to run a modern metal recycling business.

The data captured in this system can be rapidly accessed and manipulated to provide fast, accurate reports in whatever format you require. Typically, we provide detailed reports by email, which can be in any format to suit your systems.
