Ferrous metals

Ferrous metals are known for their strength because they contain iron, a few examples of ferrous metals include steel, carbon steel, stainless steel, engineering steel, cast iron and wrought iron. Ferrous metals are found in cars, architectural details bridges, railroads, and other industrial applications.

Buyers of ferrous metals

We accept most ferrous metals including domestic/household items, such as washing machines, bikes and cars, as well as all grades of heavy iron from construction, demolition, manufacturing and a diverse number of other sectors. We pay top prices for all ferrous scrap metal types.

Why recycle metals?

You can recycle metal materials infinitely without degrading their properties when re-used. Natural resources are preserved when metals are recycled, it also requires less energy to recycle than to use virgin raw materials when manufacturing new products, every time we recycle, we help protect the environment.

Scrap metal classifications

Scrap metals are split into two different catgeories: non ferrous and ferrous. Non-ferrous metals are generally higher in value than ferrous metals, but you can get money for both if you take them to the appropriate place to be recycled.

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 :-)
