Galway Metal Company Ltd. (Ireland)


Galway Metal Company Ltd. (Ireland) was established in 1969 to buy, transport and sell Scrap Metal. Over the years, the business has expanded and grown steadily and now provides an integrated service to all sectors.

From its inception - dealing almost exclusively with scrap metal - Galway Metal has reacted continuously to the requirements of the waste sector.

Among its many current activities, the company now deals in the segregation, recovery and recycling of white goods (Computer/Electrical). Galway Metal has a nationwide service and will deal with any volume - depending on requirements.

The company provides a regular collection service using a range of equipment. including:

  • Bins - for regular production line material
  • Skips - for leak free collection
  • Grab trucks - for bulky loose material
  • Magnet - for cleaning up any loose material too small for manual or grab handling

All the collected material is processed at the company's recycling site. The site, itself, incorporates all the necessary processing equipment and is being constantly upgraded to take account of the waste industry's ongoing developments.

In addition to its recent expansion into the collection and processing of white goods in the Computer & Electrical waste category, Galway Metal has traditionally been involved in the collection, processing and recycling of scrap metal.
