Just about every city in the UK will have at least one scrap metal company that services the area, and they make a living out of buying scrap metal and then recycling it. It very much depends on the type (and quantity) of scrap metal you have, as to whether they will collect it or not, and with that in mind, here is a brief description of the type of metals they would accept.
Scrap Metal Types
- Ferrous Metals – Steel and iron
- Non-Ferrous Metals – Tin, stainless steel and aluminium
- Valuable Metals – Lead, brass and copper
- Electric Cables
Old kitchen appliances are always welcome, while the dealer will also collect IT hardware, which has to be responsibly disposed of, and should you have an old car that is no longer roadworthy, the scrap metal dealer is the person to call.
The great thing about calling your local scrap dealer is they will pay top prices for your scrap metal, plus they don’t charge anything for the collection. As well as scrap metal, there is rubbish clearance in Gosport, which is ideal if you want to declutter your home or office.
Responsible Recycling & Disposal
Whenever you call someone to come and dispose of waste or scrap metal, you need to be sure that the material is recycled where possible, and by dealing with an established waste management company, you can rest assured that your waste will not end up in a landfill, where it can pollute the soil.
