Grade 1: The metal has no associated alloys within the material. There should be no corrosion associated with the scrap metal. The metal should be of a certain size and diameter.

Grade 2: Metals are typically made from alloys with the metal you want to scrap being the primary metal i.e. Grade 2 copper is normally 99% pure, while Grade 1 copper is 100% pure. To reach the highest level grading metals have to be clean and not be contaminated.

Scrap Metal Guidance

Selling scrap metal can earn you good money, so it’s with no surprise that people are eager to cash in. It’s even less surprising that some people are willing to bend the rules to pocket large amounts of cash.

News reports from across the UK about people receiving big fines for breaking the law. With this in mind, here’s our advice to anyone wanting to sell on some scrap metal. Be sure that your abiding by the rules, and you won’t get into any trouble by breaking the law.

Do not go out scrap metal collecting

While its legal to sell a scrap car or scrap metal from your own home. But if you’re going to collect scrap metal from a 3rd party, you then need a license. There are two kinds – a mobile collector’s license, and a site collector’s license.

If you do not own these licenses, it is then illegal to collect scrap metal from others. This includes visiting your neighbours to see if they have any scrap you can collect to sell on. Taking scrap metal from skips, bins and abandoned sites – or any kind of scrap metal theft is breaking the law.

Insist on seeing their license before selling your scrap

Not everyone who drives around to collect scrap is legal. As explained above, it’s only legal when they have a mobile collector’s license. If someone does ask if they can buy any scrap metal from the skip outside your home. Make sure you ask to see that their licensed. Not only are you abiding by the law, you’ll also get the best price from a registered scrap metal dealer. You can also be certain that it is being disposed inline with rules and regulations.

Don’t accept or pay cash for your metal scrap

Even scrap metal license-holders can’t offer cash for scrap metal or scrap of any kind. As part of the Scrap Metal Dealers Act 2013 legislation, it became illegal to pay cash for any scrap. If a scrap dealer offers you cash, you know that you and the scrap dealer are breaking the law. Decline and seek out a scrap dealer who follows the rules so everything is above board. Electronic bank payments are now the normal way of buying and selling scrap metals.

Licensed local scrap metal merchant

Ensure you’re selling your scrap metal in an legal way. Use a reputable, licensed local scrap yard in your area. With some scrap metal merchants, you might have to deliver the scrap metal to the yard yourself. Other scrap metal dealers will offer a scrap metal collection service. Always make sure they have the correct scrap metal licenses for both services first!

Honest, great communication, great prices. Friendly. I had a damaged catalytic converter from an attempted theft and Reclamet was the only company that had adequate communication and was not dodgy as most of the other scrap metal dealers seemed. So it was well-worth my drive from central London to Kent to get the £784 they paid me for the catalytic converter. Impressive :-)
