Health and Safety Update COVID-19

Dear Valued Client,

On Monday evening the Prime Minister announced several measures to tackle the spread of COVID-19 in the UK. These included restrictions on travel for UK residents and the closure of many categories of business.

HBC sought guidance from trade bodies and government departments and received clarification that frontline staff working in the collection and disposal of scrap metal (including end-of-life vehicles) are designated as critical workers. Consequently, HBC continues operating and all our UK storage sites remain open.

As required by the government, the HBC head office team are fully remote and able to manage and queue instructions as normal.

We thank you for your cooperation during this period of national emergency. The situation is changing daily, and we will keep you informed of all developments. If you have any questions on this matter, please contact HBC via
