A metal medley.

Barr accepts all types of metals, for reprocessing and moulting at each of our four sites.

Non-Ferrous Metals

Non-ferrous metals don’t contain any iron compound and are non-magnetic. These include copper, bronze, aluminium, brass and lead.

Ferrous Metals

Ferrous metals are made up from iron compound and are magnetic. These include steel and cast iron.


We’re glass half full at Barr, and its important to note this material can be recycled time and time again into products such as bottles, jars, non slip surfaces and even white line road markings


No mucking about.

Barr produces nutrient-rich compost from your garden waste to the PAS 100 standard, meaning we can supply this material as a soil-improver and growth medium for a multitude of horticultural and agricultural applications.
