Scrap Yard in Croydon | Covering Mitcham and the South London Area

D. Sullivan Metals Ltd is a family-run metal recycling company that has worked out of the same scrap yard in Croydon since 1978. The Sullivan family has purchased scrap metal in all surrounding London areas, including Mitcham, since the 1940s. With more than 75 years of trade experience behind us, we can offer instant payments at competitive prices. This ensures that our customers come back to use us time and time again.

We buy scrap copper, aluminium, brass, lead, steel and zinc.

You can also cash in on the value of catalytic converters and scrap parts from your car. We even have roll-on/roll-off bins available for you to store scrap metal prior to collection. With this much experience in metal recycling, it should come as no surprise that we have an excellent reputation.


We’ve helped customers to get the best prices for scrap metal by maintaining traditional family values over many decades.
