Lightweight, tough and flexible, aluminium is incredibly versatile and can be recycled over and over again. This makes it always in demand at any scrap yard or scrap metal merchant you visit around Bromley. By using sophisticated grading equipment, we ensure that clients get the best scrap metal prices possible. And by keeping a well-maintained fleet of HIAB lobbies ready to roll at a moment’s notice, we can arrange prompt scrap metal collections for any quantity of aluminium you have.

Building/Development – Second only to steel when it comes to the most used metals in construction, you’re likely to find materials ripe for scrap metal recycling in window frames, roofs, pools, bridges and all sorts of other infrastructure.

Transport/Logistics – The construction of all sorts of vehicles, from land to sea and air, is aided by aluminium. It’s not rare for our scrap yards to receive them if they’re decommissioned or written off.

Packaging – The best known us for aluminium as it’s rare a week goes past we don’t encounter a food or drink tin, or use aluminium foil. Without it we’d be lost!


Another of our most commonly processed metals is copper. Many Bromley businesses choose our scrap yard and scrap metal merchant as a partner to continually process the copper they accrue during their projects. Although, we do also accept single loads from domestic clients, and can even arrange prompt scrap metal collections for larger consignments.

Electrical Usage – Known for its conductivity, copper is used for wires, switches and circuits in all sorts of different applications – from electrical grids to individual machines.

Household Items – You can find copper around the average Bromley home, usually in the form of cutlery, doorknobs and general fixtures. All of these can be processed via scrap metal recycling, so don’t simply bin them!

Piping – Put any of the following aside should they go out of commission: copper plumbing, air con and refrigeration piping. It all adds up.

  • Radiation shielding systems
  • Cables
  • Ammunition
  • Solder and steel products
