Our St.Paul’s Project: Metal Recycling in London with RecMat Ltd


In the heart of Central London, nestled near the iconic St. Paul’s Cathedral, RecMat Ltd recently undertook a challenging project that showcases our commitment to responsible waste management and metal recycling in London. Using our powerful DAF CF450 32T truck equipped with a 50-yard bin, we successfully removed acoustic panels from air handling units on the roof of a prominent office building. In total, a remarkable 11.2 tonnes of iron were safely removed from the site, making it a resounding success in the world of recycling.

The Challenge: Recycling Acoustic Panels

Acoustic panels are crucial for maintaining a peaceful and productive environment in bustling office spaces. However, like any material, they have a lifespan and eventually need to be replaced. Our recent project next to St. Paul’s Cathedral presented the challenge of efficiently and safely removing these panels and ensuring their responsible disposal and recycling in London.

Recycling in London: A Greener Approach

Recycling is at the core of our waste management philosophy, and this project was no exception. The 11.2 tonnes of iron removed from the site weren’t destined for a landfill; instead, they were carefully sorted and prepared for recycling. Our commitment to metal recycling in London means that valuable resources are given a second life, while the environmental impact of waste disposal is minimised.

The Role of Our DAF CF450 32T Truck

The success of this project can be attributed in part to our DAF CF450 32T truck with its 50-yard bin. This powerful and efficient vehicle allows us to handle large and heavy materials with ease, making it well-suited for the removal and transportation of materials like the acoustic panels. Its reliability ensures that waste management projects in London are executed seamlessly.

Our work near St. Paul’s Cathedral exemplifies our commitment to making London cleaner and more sustainable.
