The health and safety of our staff, clients and our partners is the number one priority at General Metal Recyclers. Over the past 20 years the safety needs and requirements of our customers have grown and we have responded to them.

We have invested heavily in training for our employees. You can rest assured that when General Metal Recyclers staff enter your site they are aware of PPE (personal protective equipment) requirements and obligations at all times. This means depot managers can be confident we are operating safely onsite 100% of the time.

A number of our crane operators are NZQA accredited, licensed scrap metal dealers who use certified modern equipment – an important point of difference that we are proud of.
