Recycling Lives opens new site in Birkenhead

Recycling Lives national expansion continues, with a site takeover on the Wirral, Merseyside.

The recycling and waste management business has moved into the former McCoy Brothers Ltd site on Ebenezer Street, Birkenhead, after McCoys, a metal buyer business, went into administration earlier this month.

Now Recycling Lives is set to revive the fortunes of the facility – the largest scrap site on the Wirral – having already secured the jobs of 11 existing employees of the site.

Recycling Lives’ Managing Director William Fletcher said: “We’re proud to already have made an impact in Birkenhead by saving and creating jobs. This site will continue to be a scrap metal and scrap car processing facility from which we’ll offer the best prices to businesses on the Wirral and surrounding areas.”

Site manager Paul Nother said: “My team and I are proud to now be part of the Recycling Lives team, and to be able to offer our customers the best price for their scrap metal and cars. We look forward to continuing to work with the people and businesses of Birkenhead, the Wirral and beyond.”

It follows another national award win for Recycling Lives, after it won the Impact on Society award in the national industry awards of the British Institute for Facilities Management earlier in October.

Recycling Lives is a unique business, using its recycling and waste management operations to directly support and sustain a number of charity programmes; including food redistribution to support charities, offender rehabilitation to reduce reoffending and services to tackle homelessness, as well as job creation from its growth.
