The obvious benefits to the environment are not the only reason to recycle: effective waste management can also be extremely cost effective and is now a legal requirement in line with government guidelines on waste disposal compliance.

AT LKM WE’RE WELL ON OUR WAY TO BECOMING A ZERO WASTE COMPANY. This means that we are constantly designing new processes that will allow us to conserve and recover resources in their entirety, reducing our carbon footprint.

73%

Not only do we work towards zero waste within our company, but we also help other companies to do likewise. Last year we worked with a number of businesses; from SMEs to Blue Chips, helping each of them to create effective and lasting protocols that will allow them to work towards zero waste.

DON’T WASTE MONEY ON WASTE MATERIALS: Our service can help you to significantly cut costs - instead of paying to have your waste removed (in line with official compliance guidelines), you can speak to us about receiving payment for your recyclables, making money instead of spending it. Our service is efficient, professional and holistic, allowing you to get on with what really matters – running your business.

RECYCLED PAPER PRODUCES 73% LESS AIR POLLUTION THAN PAPER MADE FROM RAW MATERIALS

OUR OUTSTANDING LOGISTICAL CAPABILITIES INCLUDING OUR BUSY EXPORT TERMINAL, MEAN THAT WE CAN HANDLE LARGE VOLUMES of ferrous and non-ferrous metals, providing advice on compliance to our clients alongside our clear cut pricing policy. As some of the most widely recycled commodities in the UK, iron and steel represent a very large proportion of our business and we have over three decades of experience dealing with the handling, recycling and distribution of these materials.

Having started life as London and Kent Metals, we built up a solid reputation for excellence in this field before branching out to incorporate other materials in our remit.
