Third time at the top for Burrage

Prominent UK recycler Susie Burrage has been re-elected for a third term as president of the British Metals Recycling Association (BMRA).

Burrage, who is managing director of Recycled Products Limited, has already completed two periods each of two years. She is also the president of the European metal trade and recycling branch of EuRIC and is the UK Ambassador for the Bureau of International Recycling.

BMRA ceo James Kelly praised Burrage for ‘relentless’ commitment to the organisation. ‘Her tireless work has meant that the BMRA continues to be at the forefront of metals recycling in the UK and on the international stage. Her support of me and the secretariat enables us to ensure we deliver the best service we can to our members and understand the challenges that the industry faces on a day to day basis.’

‘Honour and privilege’

Burrage said it was an honour and a privilege to represent BMRA members. ‘It is made easier when you are surrounded by good people and I would like to thank my fellow board members, committee members, the BMRA secretariat and my staff at Recycled Products for their support these past four years. I look forward to continuing for another term and further extending the influence of the BMRA.’

During her tenure, the BMRA has celebrated its centenary (2019) and initiated a number of high-profile projects, including the development of the first sector-specific apprenticeship, the Metal Recycling General Operative. Its communications operations have been overhauled, including the creation of a membership and communications committee that she chairs.

She is the fourth generation of her family to own a metal recycling company, having established her Chesham-based business in 2001. Childhood memories include regular Saturday morning visits to the family scrap yard.
