I am the MOD Contract Manager with responsibility for the management of the nationwide scrap metal disposal contract held by Metal & Waste Recycling. In the time that I have managed the contract the Company has always provided the MOD with an excellent service with around 98% of collection requests being completed within the agreed contract timetable. The Company has also been helpful in dealing with some of the more unusual items we have asked them to dispose of on our behalf including the complete Nimrod aircraft fleet, a variety of armoured vehicles, and silver bearing torpedo batteries. They always manage to offer a viable disposal solution with complies with both our security and health & safety requirements.
Disposal Services Authority (Ministry of Defence)
Cooperation with Metal & Waste started in March 2009 when the decision was made to establish and operate a recycling yard at the DRMO Molesworth for the US Forces. A large amount of material needs to be mutilated or demilitarized under surveillance, in accordance with US requirements, at facilities approved by the US Government. For this purpose M&W trained some personnel through the DEMIL course who are appointed as certifiers to participate in the destruction surveillance process. M&W provides containers, material handling equipment and personnel to operate onsite 8 hours per day. M&W has shown exceptional reliability and responsibility in all fields of operations. Their excellent services are well recognised by the US Forces.
