Recycler Hunt Bros takes over Jersey’s scrap metal contract


Hunts (Jersey) Ltd (HJL) has been awarded with the contract to provide the island of Jersey with a scrap metal recycling service from 2 January 2013.

EMR has joined with Hunt Bros to form HJL. Under the terms of the arrangement, Hunt Bros will manage the day-to-day operations with EMR providing support and guidance on other key aspects of the business such as health and safety, environmental protection and marketing.


The scrap metal will be graded, cleaned and densified on the island before being transported to the UK for processing. This approach means the latest recycling technology can be used to achieve high recycling rates and produce top quality products, as well as minimising the waste for disposal on Jersey.

Hunt Bros director James Hunt said: “We’re really excited to have been awarded this contract. As a local company, we understand the metal recycling requirements of the island and we are focused on working hard to meet these.”
