West Recycling – the experts you can depend on

West Recycling is the name you can trust, thanks to our unrivalled reputation within the recycling industry and the inspired leadership of Managing Director Garry West.

Garry West is a rarity in today’s world, a vastly experienced professional who gained his exceptional knowledge and expertise through working hands-on in the industry from the bottom up.

There isn’t much about the trading, recycling and logistics business that Garry West doesn’t know, after turning his back on a lucrative job in a bank as a teenager in favour of a lower-paid job in a scrap yard.

“My mother cried the day I turned down that job at the bank,” says Garry, “but it was the start of my lifelong passion for the recycling industry.”

Within two years, Garry was managing a staff of 50 and, at the age of 20, he started trading in non-ferrous metals.

Almost 40 years later, Garry is still eager to begin every working day and derives intense satisfaction from delivering an unbeatable service to both his suppliers and buyers.

“People know they can depend on us,” says Garry. “We are different because we are a small family business that really cares. We are happy to go the extra mile for our customers and we deliver outstanding results.”
