About Us

Alurite is an accredited metal and plastic recycling facility that was founded in 2015. Located in Port Elizabeth, South Africa, it has a large infrastructure of suppliers and customers both domestically and internationally.

As part of our entrepreneurial vision we are committed to sustainable recycling and aim to minimise waste, while producing quality products for our clients.

Our recycling facility helps to create employment which aids domestic growth. We proudly employ in excess 100 people and are fully committed to our employees, supplying regular training sessions in recycling processes at our facility.

Our mission at Alurite is to ensure that all the materials we handle work within the cradle-to-grave recycling principle. Cradle-to-grave can be defined as the design and production of products of all types, in such a way that at the end of their life they can be recycled (upcycled), imitating nature’s cycle with everything either recycled or returned to the earth (zero to landfill).

Our Accreditations

Our accreditations will be updated soon.

Our Partnerships

Alurite and Mertech Marine formed a strategic relationship to strengthen both businesses in various recycling sectors. A strategic partnership was formed to establish Mertech Cable and Wire (Pty) Ltd for the beneficiation from our single source steel to manufacture various products for the construction and agricultural industries.
