Bristol has a bustling scrap metal industry, there are centres located everywhere from the city centre to Clifton, Keynsham, Wick, Pucklechurch, Pull and Long Ashton. As you can see, there is no shortage in the number of sites in the area and so it is possible to pick and choose which is offering the highest prices. Our personal recommendations for Bristol’s best scrap yards are Sims Metal Management, Scrap Metal Yard (Gatton Road – 0117 955 7767), Bristol Scrap Metal (United 6-11, Premiere Business Park, Sussex Street – 0117 855 7225) and Bristol Metal Recycling – Scrap Metal Bristol (Station Road – 0117 300 9354). While these are, in our honest opinion, the best places to sell your excess scrap metal; there are actually a significant number of other locations which can easily compete with these facilities. Bristol, like a number of other cities throughout the United Kingdom, has a very high demand for most forms of scrap metal. The city is quite unique because it not only has an excess of metals being available for trading and scrapping, but it also continually needs more of a number of the most common metals too. This demand is caused by a real surge in the productivity of businesses in the region. You will easily be able to sell scrap iron and steel for prices which are higher than the UK’s average and will also regularly see some copper be traded for a great fee too.
