BMRA is the trade association representing the £5 billion UK metal recycling sector - a globally competitive industry supplying environmentally-friendly raw material to metals manufacturers. BMRA’s 300 members trade and process steel, aluminium, copper and most other ferrous and non ferrous metals, and recycle a wide range of related products, such as end of life vehicles, packaging, batteries, domestic appliances, building materials and electronic goods. Together they process over 13 million tonnes - over 95% of the metallic scrap in the UK - every year; and export some 60% of their output to companies throughout the world. Membership is open to UK metals recycling companies of good standing that have been in business for at least two years. There are also associate membership categories for international and service members. The BMRA Code of Conduct sets a common standard for all members. We have also developed and endorsed a crime reduction Code of Practice with the Association of Chief Police Officers Metal Theft Working Group.
