Scrapping Your Iron and Cast Iron Metals

Iron is a strong, magnetic, hard metal typically silver-grey in colour. Iron occurs naturally within the Earth and the human body. Still, in terms of industry, it’s one of the most used metals and has many applications – mainly due to its low manufacturing cost and strength when produced.

Iron is a ferrous material with high magnetic properties. Steel is an alloy made with Iron containing carbon and remains the most recycled material in the world.

Scrap Iron We Buy

At Reclamet Limited, we recycle a wide variety of Iron, including:

  • Cast iron baths
  • Iron machinery
  • Iron pipe
  • Iron engine blocks
  • Iron appliances
  • Iron construction materials
  • Iron from industrial processes

What’s the difference between heavy and light-duty Iron?

Heavy-duty Iron

Heavy-duty Iron is found in machinery, iron pipes, engine blocks and white goods.

Low-duty Iron

Low duty iron is found in everyday household objects and larger items such as machinery and white goods.

How much Iron is recycled?

At Reclamet Limited, we recycle all grades of Iron. The metal is separated and then shredded, ready for melting down and purified for reuse. Iron is one of the world’s most recycled metals.

Recycling Iron and its environmental benefits

The recycling of Iron has become a vital part of the 21st-century steel industry, improving its profitability whilst minimising its impact on the broader environment. The use of secondary ferrous metals instead of ore extraction dramatically reduces CO2 emissions, energy and water consumption and overall air pollution. The recycling of existing scrap iron into steel makes for more efficient use of our planet’s natural resources.

How much will I get for my scrap Iron?

Typically heavy-duty scrap Iron will attract higher prices than low duty iron. Iron prices change daily due to market supply and demand. Feel free to give us a call for an up to date price estimate for your scrap iron.

All payments for Iron are made via electronic bank transfer or BREAD card.

  • A valid Great Britain or Northern Ireland Photocard Driving Licence or
  • A valid U.K. or EEA state Passport and a utility bill (not mobile phone), bank or building society statement, credit or debit card statement, council tax demand letter or statement which is no more than three months old.

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 Β£784 they paid me for the catalytic converter. Impressive :-)
