TotalWM is an industry leader in the specialist recovery and recycling of non-ferrous metals and other precious metals.

Non-ferrous metals include, amongst other things, aluminium, copper, brass, nickel, zinc and lead. These metals represent some of nature’s most finite resources and research suggests that these global metal reserves could be exhausted within the next 50 years, potentially leading to increases in conflict and further environmental decay. It is therefore imperative that these materials are recovered, recycled and repurposed indefinitely.

Safe and secure processes – giving you peace of mind

Upon arrival at our facilities, all material is weighed on our high-tech weighbridges, which are continuously monitored, giving clients the peace of mind that their financial returns are accurately verified with the receiving tonnage. In return for your non-ferrous and precious metals, we offer extremely competitive returns, based upon our access to global trading markets, which allows us to pass the financial benefits on to our clients.

A bespoke solution to suit your business needs

Our ferrous metal recycling service includes a bespoke and individually tailored solution, based solely on a customer’s material and individual requirements.

We offer a vast array of differing sizes of containers, receptacles and vehicular fleet for each client’s needs, which, in turn, takes into account tonnage arisings, availability of storage space and accessibility.

This allows us to provide a service provision for a full array of organisations and businesses, regardless of their size or structure, ranging from large-scale corporate clients; individual decommissioning and demolition projects; and smaller, more localised businesses. Whatever the size of your business, TotalWM has the solution.

Real-time reporting – keeping your sustainability on track

We provide real-time reporting on material tonnages, revenue returns and carbon (CO2 eq) impact emissions data, which can feed into our clients’ own corporate ESG reporting and their respective Scope 3 emissions.

Innovative recycling solutions

TotalWM continue to invest in improved, state-of-the-art technology for our balers, shears and heavy-lifting capabilities, which guarantees we can handle any grade of material, as well as ensuring that our sorting, segregating and processing operations are as efficient and effective as possible. This leads to increased revenue returns, but also helps to reduce the CO2 emissions arising from our activities.

Getting to net zero

At Total Waste Management we recognise we have an integral part to play in helping the UK achieve its net zero goals by 2050 and are committed to working towards our own ESG and carbon-reduction agenda. In 2022 we released our carbon baseline report, which acts as the driver to our carbon-reduction action plan going forwards.
