Bradford Waste Traders Help Yorkshire Meet EU Recycling Targets

Commercial metal waste specialists, Bradford Waste Traders are helping save the nation from fines of up to £500,000 a day this summer by recovering waste metal in a bid to phase out land filling by 2025.

Targets set by the European Union aim to see 90% of all ferrous metal recycled by the end of 2030 in a bid to boost recycling and promote economic growth. Recently Yorkshire increased recycling rates to 52%, a 22% boost on previous figures. Bradford Waste Traders is offering any Yorkshire business the chance to recycle waste metal in order to increase recycling rates across the region, helping the UK to hit its EU target.

A spokesperson for Bradford Waste Traders said, “We can’t deny the fact that the world is running out of landfill space, and in the UK we generate more waste per person than our European neighbours. The EU recycling target is set at an acceptable and achievable level. As one of the biggest member states of the EU we should be doing more to promote recycling. Bradford Waste Traders extended our waste recycling services 10 years ago with the introduction of our Authorised Vehicle Treatment Facility Centre.”

The team at Bradford Waste Traders is able to recycle and process all types of scrap metal including copper, brass, iron, stainless steel and aluminium. They are happy to receive domestic loads on site and assist the processing of waste metals for councils in addition to commercial waste, the use of skips, tipper trucks and other resources to manage large loads. Clients can also trust Bradford Waste Traders to safely dispose of radiators, motors and electrical cables.

Bradford Waste Traders operate a fully licensed Authorised Treatment Facility (AFT) for treating vehicles at the end of their life. This includes de-polluting and destroying the vehicles as safely as possible, in a way which causes the least harm to the environment.

Bradford Waste Traders added, “It’s all about doing your bit for the environment and the community, and possibly a little bit more if you can. After all the targets are only going to increase – we’ll also be expected to divert 70% of waste from landfill by 2030.”
