Metal recycling services

Unlike materials such as plastic, nearly all metals can be recycled. Despite this, it is estimated just 50% of all metal used in the UK is recycled, meaning a huge amount is still transferred to landfills. This is unacceptable when metal itself doesn’t biodegrade and landfill space is running out.  

Recycling scrap metal also saves more energy and produces fewer gas emissions than making new metal from its ore. Recycled aluminium, for example, uses 92% less energy to produce than extracting aluminium from its ore. 

We ensure all metal we collect is properly sorted and sent to a relevant recycling facility where it can be reused. If you would like to find out more, call our team for a chat on  0345 305 2614 or complete an enquiry form online today.

All scrap metal collected 

All metal is broken down into two broader categories: ferrous metals and non-ferrous metals. 

Ferrous metals contain iron, are magnetic and typically more corrosive. Commonly-used ferrous metals include: 

  • Mild steel 
  • Carbon steel 
  • Stainless steel 
  • Cast iron 
  • Wrought iron 

In comparison, non-ferrous metals do not contain iron, are not magnetic and are usually more resistant to corrosion than ferrous metals. Commonly-used non-ferrous metals include: 

  • Aluminium 
  • Copper 
  • Brass 
  • Silver  
  • Lead 

When dealing with large amounts of waste metal, it can be difficult to establish which types of metal are included. The expertise held within our team allows us to handle all types of metal, meaning you don’t have to worry about sorting your metal or splitting it into ferrous and non-ferrous in order to find the most valuable scrap. 

What is classed as scrap metal? 

In simple terms, scrap metal is any combination of waste material, metallic material or product which contains metal and is capable of being recycled. It can include vehicle parts, copper wire, stainless steel and aluminium cans. 

Scrap metal can have tremendous monetary value in larger quantities and can still be worth a not-inconsiderable sum even in smaller quantities. Indeed, the UK metal recycling industry is worth an incredible £7billion today.
