Recycling & Material Recovery


Metal processing

Robinson & Birdsell Ltd is an accredited direct supplier to steel works and foundries. The company’s extensive fleet of vehicles and its full range of specialist handling and processing equipment are all co-ordinated from its two, long established sites, in Leeds and Head Office in nearby Wetherby.

The all important link with smelters assists the traceability of any material, from any site in the UK and computerised material records are available for clients.


The company specialises in the reprocessing and trading of ferrous and non-ferrous materials. It incorporates a cable granulation facility which provides an efficient, cost effective and environmentally acceptable way of recycling factory and site derived cable in all its forms.

Other areas of expertise lie in the dismantling of electrical equipment, and the company specialises in transformer removal and the dismantling of complete sub-stations.

All materials generated from demolition and dismantling sites achieve 95% of recycling rates. The Recycling and Material Recovery Division works closely with the Demolition Division to ensure a keen pricing structure when tendering for dismantling or scrap removal.
