Local Economy & The Waste Hierarchy

Masons are strong believers in supplying and supporting the local economy. The regions strength in metal working/manufacturing creates scrap and provides the foundry's to re-use it. Masons has retained UK foundry custom and many are within the West Midlands region.

The emergence of "The circular economy" fits precisely with our business ethos.

Why a circular economy is important -

As well as creating new opportunities for growth, a more circular economy will:

reduce waste

drive greater resource productivity

deliver a more competitive UK economy.

position the UK to better address emerging resource security/scarcity issues in the future.

help reduce the environmental impacts of our production and consumption in both the UK and abroad.

This ethos also fits precisely with the Waste Hierarchy model of Reduce, Re-use, Recycle, Recovery, landfill in order of preference.

Once processed and aggregated at our DY5 premises some scrap grades are physically melted and recycled into new raw material feed stocks or products on our doorstep.  The cost and carbon savings are immense – by supplying Mason’s you support and feed our local “Circular Economy” create local jobs and invest in local businesses.  All this on top of receiving a great price for your scrap metal, fulfilling your legal duty of care/waste hierarchy and helping the environment by recycling.  We also provide you with the documentation to prove it – this supports your own businesses “green profile” so important in todays business arena.
