Cardiff Scrap Metal Prices

Cardiff’s main scrap metal trading facilities are situated around Adamsdown, Atlantic Wharf and near the Wales Millennium Centre. Some of the most popular sites include Sims Metal Management, Ferrous Scrap Metal (Rover Way – 0-29 2046 0517), Cardiff Metal Merchants Ltd (7 Curran Road – 029 2039 8211) and Marquette Metal Recycling (2b Guest Road – 029 2049 4899). There are many other active locations in Cardiff, but these are our clear favourites given their excellent prices and pricing history of most forms of scrap metal. Cardiff is a city which generally has prices which do exceed the national average and are certainly far higher than the Welsh average too. This is largely because of its great demand for metal and strong transport links throughout Wales and to other cities in the United Kingdom. There are a number of large mines situated in North Wales, these have historically supplied local businesses with their raw metal requirements. Despite this, the prices of scrap metals in Cardiff have always been quite high. Conversely, we recommend not travelling away from the city if you are a keen metal trader. You really don’t need to go anywhere else as you will struggle to find better prices unless you are willing to travel significantly further in land into England. Our recommendation for people in Wales and more locally in Cardiff is to compare metal prices on this website and then ring up a few local dealers to check what the prices are doing on any particular day.
