Waste Duty of Care Compliance
In adherence to environmental legislation and as a fully authorised scrap metal dealer, we are required to comply with all Waste Duty of Care obligations when disposing of waste.
At Morecambe Metals, we have the correct equipment and procedures in place to ensure we are storing and transporting waste effectively by those who are authorised to do so.
It is a legal responsibility of ours to store, transport and dispose of waste without harming the environment. This duty of care applies to all waste, including scrap metal, WEEE, and ELVs.
Recorded Transactions from a Fully Authorised Dealer
You can have peace of mind when you choose to sell your scrap metal because every transaction is made under Duty of Care requirements, including the recording of all purchase transactions and weighbridge transactions. We can guarantee a transparent audit trail and fully compliant documentation.
We abide by all laws surrounding the dealing, processing and selling of scrap metal in the UK which ensures the safety and environmental protection for our customers and employees.
To ensure we remain fully compliant with our Duty of Care, we keep a record of complete waste transfer notes (WTNs) which keeps a track of all waste that we process for at least two-years.
We have also invested in a number of GPS-tracked vehicles which aids in the efficient collection of goods, as well as vehicle monitoring and theft recovery.
