John Brocklesby Partnership

Valpak’s relationship with Hull based metal reprocessor is a great example of how mutually beneficial relationships enable Valpak’s customers to realise the benefits of local recycling infrastructure

John Brocklesby Metal Management Ltd is a family run, Hull based, scrap metal dealer, non ferrous and steel processor that has been in operation for over 50 years.

Partnering with local recycling providers

Independent and regional reprocessors are the backbone of the UK’s recycling infrastructure. In addition to the vital local services and employment they provide, these businesses are also responsible for much of the sector’s innovation and new technology development.

Valpak recognises the importance of this highly skilled network and works to partner with local providers wherever possible in the delivery of its recycling services.


Valpak’s relationship with Hull based metal reprocessor, John Brocklesby Limited, is a great example of how these mutually beneficial relationships enable Valpak’s customers to realise the benefits of this local recycling infrastructure.

John Brocklesby Limited has worked with Valpak on the delivery of its civic amenity site contract with FCC Environmental since 2015. Whilst the company’s fully licenced ATTF facility gave Valpak the confidence it needed to partner John Brocklesby, it was the outstanding service levels and commitment to innovation that really made them stand out from the crowd. This investment included a dedicated small WEEE shredding facility, meaning more valuable secondary resources can now be recovered on site. This is important as more value and employment opportunities can be generated in the local area WEEE does not need to be transported long distances. The new line means most Small WEEE material can now be processed on site reducing haulage costs and emissions.

As well as the environmental and commercial benefits associated with improved resource management, the partnership also generates valuable evidence that enables Valpak’s Compliance Scheme members to meet their obligations.

Working with Valpak has given us access to work and material which would have been hard for us to secure in isolation. It’s a true partnership based on a shared commitment to delivering the highest level of service to our customer. This is achieved through a fully transparent and commercially balanced relationship.
