Scrap Metal Collection

Scrap metal collection is a fantastic service that we offer where you get the chance to make some money while helping us recycle at the same time. It might sound too good to be true, but Skip and Waste have a dedicated scrap metal collection service that offers the most competitive prices. On top of that, we’ll even drive out to collect it from you, making the whole process as easy for you as we can.

Scrap metal is in demand because it can be repurposed for future projects, so rather than simply dispose of the metals you give us, we’ll take the time to consider how it can be reused instead. We offer an innovative ‘metal grade’ analysis, which basically means that we’ll determine how valuable your scrap metal is depending on its wear, its alloy composition, and its current demand. We want to make sure you get as much as you deserve, so our teams will talk you through the process of pricing and payment upon arrival.

There are two main categories for commercially used metals: ferrous, and non-ferrous. Ferrous metals are called so because they contain iron, so, for example, a cast iron skillet would count as a ferrous metal. Examples of ferrous metals include stainless steel, cast iron, and carbon steel.

Because iron oxidises, ferrous metals tend to be less valuable than non-ferrous metals, which are normally used for more specialised purposes. Non-ferrous metals include aluminium, copper, brass, and silver, which we’ll buy from you for a very agreeable price. Even small amounts of scrap non-ferrous metals could be worth collection; a broken saxophone, for example, or silver jewellery and cutlery.

Our teams are expertly trained to ensure not only that you get the right price, but that all metals we pick up are properly categorised so that they can be repurposed to maximum effectiveness. We pride ourselves on our ability to help the environment and the economy in whatever way we can, while always putting the customer experience at the centre of what we do.

We also specialise in handling vehicle scraps and factory clearances, allowing us to take on industrial-scale projects with professional efficiency and care. We’re fully licensed too, so you can rest easy knowing that your transaction with us is within all legal boundaries and that it has been properly documented. We’ll give you a receipt for any purchase of metals we make for you to keep should you need to refer to it in the future.

However large or small your scrap metal collection might be, we’re more than happy to come out and pick it up from you. So what are you waiting for? Find out if you have any valuable scrap metal for collection by giving us a call today.
