Turn Scrap Metal into Christmas Money

Protecting our environment

SWM are keen to use their experience and expertise to support the local community, to help protect our environment and ensure that we all comply with waste management legislation. New and more stringent waste management enforcement might be seen by some as a burden but it cannot be ignored.
