Industry leading scrap metal recycling and reuse services
The scrap and metal recycling division has its roots in the original John Lawrie business – and it continues to be a key element of the group’s ongoing success.
John Lawrie Metals has established processing facilities in Aberdeen, Montrose and Evanton, near Invergordon, where scrap metal is sorted and sheared for recycling into new steel products. Reuse and recycling is a viable alternative to scrapping, and it's an option that has a positive effect on our clients' environmental credentials. Our goal is to provide a problem-free solution for the removal, storage and the ultimate recycling or resale of scrap metal.
Scrap metal prices can be linked to industry-recognised independent steel-market commodity values. Published on a fortnightly basis and available online, the Material Recycling World (MRW) takes into account up to date prices for a variety of scrap metals, thereby ensuring clients receive the best value for their scrap at all times.
