At our award-winning environmental site in Standish, Wigan Metal Recycling can handle a variety of metals with quick turnaround facilities. We have been in business for more than a century and have remained a proudly family-owned business since we first began operations in 1904. We are known for our reputation for ethical dealings, prompt payments, use of modern innovations and strict adherence to government and local regulations. Since 2012 we have launched cashless payments, where we provide only cheques or electronic payments for scrap in keeping with the new rules regarding scrap metal collection. In 2014, we introduced a Metal Cash Card where customers can opt for a free Visa pre-paid card.
For our customers in Wigan, scrap collection ensures several important benefits to the economy, environment and global trade. Today, most governments understand that mining ores is a non-sustainable and destructive activity. Metals can easily be recycled and reused to avoid the environmental damage that mining and refining cause to the earth. Exporting and selling recycled metals in international markets helps to boost the government’s economy while it also saves energy and natural resources. It also results in reduced landfill utilisation, pollution and prevents destruction of animal habitats. The recycling industry provides new and increased job opportunities that wouldn’t have existed before.
