Clearway was established in the mid 1960s when John Murphy started in the waste management and scrap recycling business. Clearway operates from four modern processing and exporting facilities located at Portadown (head office), as well as three export divisions in Belfast, Londonderry and Sligo. Each facility accepts and processes all grades of ferrous and non-ferrous scrap metals. A landfill site at Aughrim Quarry was acquired by Clearway in 2006. The site has a capacity to receive up to 250,000 tonnes per annum — which Clearway said provides “long-term solutions to the waste disposal of Northern Ireland”.
