Ferrous metals

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?

Metals are materials that can be recycled again and again without degrading their properties. The recycling of metals enables us to preserve natural resources while requiring less energy to process than the manufacture of new products using virgin raw materials, thus protecting the environment.

Scrap metal classifications

Scrap metals are classified into two categories: ferrous and non-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.
