Edinburgh Scrap Metal Prices

Edinburgh, the capital city of Scotland, is world renowned for having some of the best scrap metal yards in the western hemisphere. These can be found across much of the city, but there is a particularly dense collection of scrap recycling dealers in Blackford, Newcraighall, Musselburgh, Inveresk, Wallyford, Gogar, Ingliston, Dalmeny and near the city centre too. If you are intent on getting the highest price for your scrap metal in Edinburgh, then we would recommend paying a visit to John Mcdonald Metal Recycling (Unit 5, Russell Road Industrial Estate, 15 Sauchiebank), Dalton Metal Recycling (52/66 Salamander Street, Leith) and Dalton Stephen (23 Yeaman Place). We found that these had the best scrap metal prices for most of the year, their prices were higher than the Scottish average and most of the other dealers in Edinburgh too. The customer service at each of these scrap yards was fantastic and we left feeling great. You will be able to easily trade any volume of metal, ferrous or non-ferrous, and so you don’t need to worry about any of that whatsoever. The latest scrap metal prices for Edinburgh can be found in our table below, if something is unclear then please do get in touch and we will strive to answer your query as a priority. Typically you will be able to trade in a tonne (1000kg) of any of the main metals (aluminium, iron and copper) for a few thousand pounds with ease.
