Metro Metals is a specialist metal and vehicle recycling company situated in Burnley, Lancashire right in the heart of the North West of England.
Metro Metals is a family business, started in 1958 under the railway arches on Ashfield Road, Burnley. Since then, Metro Metals has rapidly grown and is now the largest metal recycler in Burnley. In 2000, Metro Metals had outgrown its town centre premises, resulting in a £2 Million investment in a brand new, state of the art recycling facility. The new recycling site is fully compliant with all current environmental legislation.
A rainwater harvesting system has even been installed so we even recycle water as well as scrap metal! This system received a highly commended certificate at the Lancashire Telegraph Awards 2006 and commended certificate from the Business Environment Association Awards 2006. Metro Metals currently employs 6 full time staff and 3 part time staff.
