Betts Envirometal

Betts Envirometal is a member of The Betts Group. The original family business, specialising in the smelting and refining of precious metals, was founded in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter by Alexander Betts at the dawn of the industrial revolution back in 1760.

Now in the 9th consecutive generation of family management, and entering the 4th century in which it trades, the Betts family is proud of its long history of integrity and commercial strength. Throughout this time our core principles have always been to provide ‘quality’ and ‘service’ -two words that are too easily used and often not fulfilled. These two qualities are the founding principles of Betts Envirometal.

Recognising the ever-increasing restrictions being imposed on waste movements and the need to work with customers to develop integrated waste management solutions, Betts Envirometal was established to provide a complete, specialised waste management service; initially for the industries in which Betts has always operated.

In the time Envirometal has been operating, the restrictions, rules and bureaucracy governing the production, transportation and treatment of wastes have increased at an unprecedented and overbearing rate.

The impact of tighter regulation is costly and time consuming and may have drawn your management away from its primary objectives. Legislation has placed the onus upon waste producers to ensure that their wastes are dealt with correctly.

Betts Envirometal manages precious metal and hazardous waste streams for our customers. With our state-of-the-art factories, specialist transport fleet, comprehensive licenses and an exemplary Health & Safety record, we are capable of processing almost any type of ‘special’ or ‘controlled’ waste from any industry at competitive prices.

Whist we specialise in the treatment, recovery and disposal of ‘special’ and ‘controlled’ wastes, we are conscious of the need to provide a total waste management solution. This means that we aim to dispose of all the associated wastes produced by our customers, irrespective of their nature.

We are also able to offer a secure storage and destruction solution, incorporating a professional records management solution for our customers. 

At Betts Envirometal we take recovery of hazardous waste and precious metal bearing waste seriously.  Our up to date technology means we are able to efficiently reuse and recycle more and more waste, avoiding landfill and saving the environment. We dispose of thousands of NHS medical records and X Rays, with all of the associated paper and cardboard being recycled. Precious metal waste is recovered and re-used. Since 1760 we have been experts in precious metal recovery; our investment in the latest processes ensure we remain the most efficient in dealing with this sort of commodity.

We provide UK-wide waste movements, collections, recycling, disposal and recovery for businesses of all sizes and waste needs.
