Non-ferrous metal processing is the handling and transformation of metals that do not contain iron, including aluminium, copper, brass, and nickel. The process typically involves the collection of scrap metal or raw non-ferrous metals, sorting and separating them from other materials. Then, using advanced techniques like melting, casting, or machining, we create new products or recycle existing metals.

The goal is to recover valuable metals for reuse, reducing the need to extract new raw materials and promoting sustainability, which is one of our key values at Morecambe Metals.

non ferrous metal recycling


With over 35 years of expertise, we excel in the distribution, processing, and recycling of non-ferrous metals. Throughout this period, we have dedicated ourselves to refining and progressing techniques that allow us to produce non-ferrous grades of the finest quality consistently.

One of our key strengths is the recovery of different non-ferrous grades from various waste streams, including the challenging task of handling shredder residue. To achieve this, we use extremely advanced technology, such as a series of Eddy Current Separators. These are invaluable throughout the processing chain as they effectively split incoming scrap into distinct categories of non-ferrous metals and waste. This strategic separation allows materials to be directed to the appropriate channels for further recycling, optimising resources.

At Morecambe Metals, we consistently deliver premium quality in everything we do, and our non-ferrous metal processing service is no exception. That’s why we carry out specific testing of special alloys with our modern spectrometer. This specialised piece of equipment empowers us to thoroughly test and analyse alloys like aluminium, copper, and nickel. By doing so, we guarantee our customers receive the highest possible value for their metals. This inclusive approach to non-ferrous metal processing not only highlights our constant dedication to quality assurance but also reinforces our pledge to provide overall transparency and value across the entire process.


We strive to adopt a customer-centric approach, and our team is available to address any inquiries you may have.
