HRL recycle and process ferrous and non-ferrous scrap and waste metals. We also recycle aluminium cans. You can either deliver directly to us or we will collect.

Scrap metals recovery and recycling, or metals management as we term it, has been around since the industrial revolution. In the past, companies have not been too bothered about how and what happens to their waste metal disposal. Now with legislation and corporate responsibility the disposal, and more importantly recycling of waste, particularly metals, has become a major management responsibility.

At Humberside Reclamation Ltd (HRL) we provide solutions for those who have scrap metal disposal needs. We can collect ferrous and non-ferrous metals for recycling and we also accept direct delivery to our plant in the centre of Hull.

Aluminium Can Recycling

Humberside Reclamation Ltd (HRL) have a full processing facility for aluminium cans where we collect, grade and bail the cans. We will collect large quantities or for smaller quantities individuals and organisations can drop cans off for immediate payment.

The recycling of aluminium produces only 5% of the CO2 emissions compared to smelting new aluminium. By recycling aluminum cans we not only protect the environment we also significantly reduce the waste being created and the need to find landfill to bury them in. HRL are a recognised aluminium can recycling depot and recycle them by the thousands!
