How We Work

What does UK Metals – Metal Waste?

We pay equivalent prices to your local scrap yard.

Our payment process is simple and efficient. Within 5 working days (usually 2/3 days) of collecting your materials, we will transfer funds directly into your bank account. This timeframe allows us to carefully sort, grade and weigh your materials to ensure that you receive the best prices possible. Additionally, we provide you with a detailed Self-Bill Invoice, saving you even more time and hassle.

Our service is designed to minimize downtime and eliminate the need for you to make trips to the scrap yards. We understand that your time is valuable, so we offer a convenient solution. We will provide you with a red wheelie bin at no cost and without any contracts. Click here to Order a FREE Metal Recycling Wheelie Bin. You can easily fill this bin with your electrical and plumbing scrap metal waste, without the need for sorting. We pay equivalent prices to scrap yards!

To further streamline the process, we offer regular collections. Every 6 weeks we will contact you to see if you require your wheelie bin emptying, or more frequently if required, we will empty the contents of your wheelie bin into a dumpy bag. We will carefully photograph, label and mark the bag before taking it back to our yard for sorting, grading and weighing.

Rest assured that we operate within the guidelines set by The Environment Agency and relevant authorities. We are fully licensed, ensuring that our operations are conducted responsibly and in compliance with regulations. Your trust and satisfaction are our top priorities.
