Keeping your
assets secure

Locked waste metal stillage

What happens to your metal shouldn't be a mystery. Lockable stillages, each with a unique identity code, prevent tampering on-site, and EMR provides a full audit trail starting with a collection request form, and waste transfer notes, plus material verification sheets once your waste metal has been received in a secure warehouse.

We can fulfil any requirements you have for secure destruction — as demonstrated through our work with the Ministry of Defence.

Payments you can
rely on

With your waste metal's journey audited every step of the way, EMR is able to provide payments with a minimum of fuss and queries. Should any questions arise an account manager is there to resolve them quickly.
