Metal & Waste Recycling

9 May 2019

Following EMR’s acquisition of Metal & Waste Recycling Ltd (M&W) in August 2017, the Competition & Markets Authority (CMA) undertook an investigation into the effects of the acquisition on competition in the market which resulted in EMR agreeing to divest parts of the M&W business.

In compliance with the commitments it gave to the CMA, EMR has entered into an agreement to sell M&W to Recycling Lives Ltd, other than that part of the M&W business based in London, being the M&W sites at Edmonton and Neasden (the London Sites). The sale will complete on 30th May 2019. On closing, that part of the M&W business based at the London Sites will transfer to EMR.

We believe that M&W will continue to thrive under the ownership of Recycling Lives and provide a secure future for M&W’s employees. We thank the M&W employees for their patience and understanding through the divestment process and on closing we will be delighted to welcome to the EMR Group those M&W employees based at the London Sites.
