Reclamet offer payment by cheque, BACS, BREAD card and provide same day money transfers.

How can I get the best scrap metal prices?

The price of scrap metal changes day to day. Scrap metal prices are based on manufacturer demands and accessibility to stock available. The price of scrap metal increases if a manufacturer requires more of a certain commodity or decreases if there is surplus to demand.

Scrap metal grading and its effect on prices

Scrap metal prices are determined by the grade of the metal. Metals have different classifications that make it a lower or higher grade.

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

Grade 2: Metals are generally made from alloy with the primary metal being the metal you want to scrap. i.e. Grade 2 copper is generally 99% pure, while Grade 1 copper is 100% pure. Metals must be clean of any foreign contamination to reach the highest level grading (getting the best scrap metal price).

How can I find the current scrap metal prices?

The London Metal Exchange (LME) gives an indication of metal prices in dollars for the day as well as historical data. Call Reclamet today on for up to date metal prices.

When will scrap metal prices go up?

UK Scrap metal prices are affected by many external markets. Exports of cheaper Chinese steel have historically been blamed for pushing down the UK scrap prices. The Turkish TSI index is a key benchmark of global trade and although in recent years there have been increases it’s not where it was back in 2007-2008.

That being said as recent as September 2017 we saw a spike on the LME prices for steel, so we would suggest keeping an eye out on the markets to get the best scrap metal prices.

Do you need a license to buy scrap metal? When can you sell scrap metal legally? Find out the rules for selling scrap.

Scrap Metal Guidiance

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

With news reports from across the UK recently about people receiving big fines for breaking the laws around dealing with scrap metals. With this in mind, here’s our advice to anyone wanting to sell on some scrap metal, so you can 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 perfectly 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 possess these licenses, it is then illegal to collect scrap metal from others, including visiting your neighbours to see if they have any scrap you can collect to sell on.

And, of course, it’s obvious that taking scrap metal from skips, bins and abandoned sites – or any kind of scrap metal theft is prohibited by law also.

Insist on seeing their license before selling your scrap

Not everyone who drives around to collect scrap is doing so illegally, of course – as explained above, it is possible to have a mobile collector’s license.

However, if someone does come calling asking if they can buy any scrap metal from the skip outside your home, make sure you ask to see that they are legally licensed.

Not only are you abiding by the law, you’ll also get the best price from a registered scrap metal dealer, and you can be certain that your scrap is being disposed of properly and inline with environmental 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. So, if a scrap dealer offers you cash, you know that you and the scrap dealer are breaking the law and can be fined heavily for doing so, politely decline and seek out a scrap dealer who follows the rules so everything is above board.

While a cheque can be accepted, electronic bank payments are now the normal way of buying and selling scrap metals.

Deal directly with a fully licensed local scrap merchant

The only way to ensure you’re selling your scrap metal in an legal and responsible fashion, and for the best price, is to find a reputable, locally licensed scrap yard in your area.

With some scap metal merchants, you might have to deliver the scrap metal to the yard yourself, while other scrap metal merchants will offer a scrap metal collection service. Just make sure they have the correct scrap metal licenses for both services first!

At Reclamet, we have all the relevant correct credentials. We’re ISO 9001:2015 accredited, a licensed waste transfer station, an authorised treatment facility for scrap cars, waste carriers license, environmental agency license, so you can be sure we’re reliable and have all the licenses aquired by law.
