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

D. Sullivan Metals is a family-run metal recycling company from Croydon, in South London, that has traded from the same scrap yard since 1978. The Sullivan family is a trusted name, having bought scrap metal in the Croydon, Mitcham and South London areas since the 1960s. With over 60 years of experience behind us, we can offer instant payment options, competitive prices on scrap metals, and a fast, friendly service that ensures our customers come back to us time and time again.

We buy scrap copper, brass, lead, aluminium, stainless steel, PVC copper cables, zinc, electric motors, catalytic converters and more. We also offer a collection service for larger quantities of scrap metal using either a drop-side truck or roll-on/roll-off bins. Call to discuss your requirements.

You can also cash in on the value of scrap parts from your car. We even have roll-on/roll-off bins available for you to store scrap metal prior to us making a collection.  

With this much experience in metal recycling, it should come as no surprise that we have an excellent reputation.
