UK scrap metal recycling firm S Norton has eased the restrictive delivery measures it put in place to help contain COVID-19, the company announced.
Norton is accepting material from suppliers, irrespective of whether or not they’re VAT-registered, but new deliveries are limited to ferrous materials. However, it’s accepting un-depolluted end-of-live vehicles and scrap car bodies that don’t contain other waste or scrap items to abet simple visual inspections.
Norton had initially implemented temporary restrictions on March 25 on all ferrous and nonferrous bulk deliveries to protect employees and the community from exposure to the virus.
With supply set to increase, it is likely to partially remove some support from UK dockside and mills’ ferrous scrap purchase prices in the near term.
