As with all socially responsible large organisations, reducing the environmental impact within and beyond the terms of government regulation forms an integral part of the operations at Morley Waste Traders. Of course, as a registered waste disposal and recycling business, our services by their very nature are designed to reduce the environmental impact of initial production methods.


Through our various sites, Morley waste Traders provides a full and complete vehicle depollution and recycling service. Before the vehicle is scrapped for its steel, we remove dangerous or valuable elements and dispose of them safely and according to regulations. Items treated in this manner include:

  • Batteries
  • Oil Filters
  • Tyres
  • Waste Oil
  • Brake Fluid
  • Fuel

Recognised by the DVLA, Morley Waste Traders operates an authorised treatment facility (ATF) at its Hull, Huddersfield, Gildersome and Leeds (Pepper Road) sits. A specialist service, we are able to take any type of vehicle that has reached the end of its life. A Certificate of Destruction will be issued in line with current regulations once the vehicle has been scrapped. This leaves you with the peace of mind that your vehicle has been destroyed according to environmental law.


Recycling aluminium requires only 5% of the energy and produces only 5% of the CO2 emissions compared with that of the primary production method. By recycling aluminum cans it significantly reduces the waste being dumped into landfills. Morley Waste Traders collects hundreds of thousands of aluminium cans every year. Processing them into bales ready to be recycled and turned into new products, from another drinks can to an aeroplane.
