Fighting Metal Crime in Newry

At Approved Metal Recyclers we are working with various bodies in the fight against metal crime in Newry, as elsewhere. It is an unfortunate fact that when scrap metal prices are high criminals will look for easy pickings. The fight against metal crime starts at the local scrap yards, such as those in Newry.

None of our local scrap yard dealers want to be involved with criminal activity with regards to the theft of scrap metal. The disruption caused by police investigations takes it toll on legitimate businesses, and the public do not want to see the police in a Newry scrap yard where they are looking to sell their scrap metal.

By working with the metal recyclers and bodies fighting metal crime we hope to stamp out this problem no matter what scrap metal prices are. Together we can reduce the theft of metal and stop some of the abhorrent crime, such as the desecration of war memorials, that have taken place.

Newry is a city in Northern Ireland. The River Clanrye, which runs through the city, forms the historic border between County Armagh and County Down. It is 34 miles (55 km) from Belfast and 67 miles (108 km) from Dublin. Newry (together with Bessbrook) had a population of 27,433 at the 2001 Census, while Newry and Mourne Council Area had a population of 87,058. Newry was founded in 1144 alongside a Cistercian monastery and is one of Northern Ireland's oldest towns. The city of Newry is one of the constituent cities of the Dublin-Belfast corridor and sits at the entry to the "Gap of the North", close to the border with the Republic of Ireland. It grew as a market town and a garrison and became a port in 1742 when it was linked to Lough Neagh by the first summit-level canal in Britain or Ireland. In March 2002, as part of Queen Elizabeth's Golden Jubilee celebrations, Newry was granted city status alongside Lisburn. Despite being the fourth largest city in Northern Ireland, however, it is not the fourth largest settlement. Newry has long been an important centre of trade because of its position between Belfast and Dublin.
