London Scrap Metal Prices

London has an absolute abundance of scrap yards for people who have stores of scrap metal to. The prices of scrap in London are also some of the highest available in the whole country too and so it’s a no brainer that people should be taking advantage of it. Our favourite scrap yards in the capital include; Bermondsey Scrap Metals, London Boys Scrap Metals and Burdett Metals. If none of these are easy to get to, then don’t worry, there are so many other scrap yards that you will never be too far from one. Another benefit of selling scrap metal in London is that you will always be able to find a dealer who will accept some of the more obscure types of metal; lead, bronze, zinc and more. There is always a demand for scrap in London and so the prices for it will always be good too. The metals which sell for the highest in the city include copper, brass, lead and steel. Scrap metal prices are highest in the outskirts of the city, but there are also many locations situated within the M25 which have prices that match these. I believe that London is perhaps the best city to sell scrap metal in across the whole United Kingdom.

You will be able to find a decent amount of scrap yards and dealers in Wembley, Edgware, Barnet, Holloway, Sherpherd’s Bush, Brentford, around the Isle of Dogs, Clapham, Brixton, Peckham, Stratford, Hackney and further afield too. There is so many recycling facilities in the area surrounding London that it is simple to make a transaction in less than 30 minutes from almost any location. The best places that we had the pleasure to visit were; London Scrap Metal Recycling (46 Tewkesbury Road), Royal Docks Metals (9-11 Caxton Street), Capital Metal Recycling (104 Scrubs Lane), Southwark Metals Ltd (40 Sandgate Street) and EMR London Brentford (4 Transport Avenue). The prices for most ferrous and non-ferrous metals were incredibly high at all of these scrap yards and so we highly recommend each of them. Get in contact with each of them on the day you are planning on selling some scrap metal and find out which ones work out best for you from a proximity perspective and also from a pricing standpoint. Let us know if you have any issues with anything and we will be more than happy to help, as we are also based within the London area.
