Metal recycler launches school education programme

24 September 2018

One of the world’s leading metal recycling companies, EMR has pledged its support to Recycle Week to raise awareness of the importance of recycling in schools.

As part of Recycle Week, EMR has today (Monday 24 September) launched a school educational programme that will be delivered to schools up and down the country to educate children on metal and the importance of recycling.

Now in its 15th year, Recycle Week, running from Monday 24 September to Sunday 30 September, is a celebration of recycling, organised by WRAP. The aim of the week is to encourage the public to recycle more, by demonstrating the benefits of recycling items from all around the home.

EMR’s Marketing and Communications Director, Gareth Williams said: “We are proud to be supporting Recycle Week and launching our schools education programme. As one of the UK’s leading metal recyclers, we recognise the importance of recycling, as our natural resources won’t last forever and landfilling is unsustainable.

“We believe in the importance of educating as many young people as possible as the more metal we recycle, the less ore we need to take from the ground.

“At EMR we recycle around 10 million tonnes of metal each year, which saves 15 million tonnes of CO2 compared to using virgin ores; equivalent to the CO2 generated by 4.5 million average households.

“With over 70 sites around the country, we can serve most areas of the UK. It is time to put our planet first and consider – can your metal waste be recycled?”
