Your Scrap Yard in Croydon, Serving All of South London | D Sullivan Metals Ltd

Welcome to the online home of D Sullivan Metals, a family-run scrap metal recycling business situated in Croydon. Since 1978, our scrap yard has welcome domestic and commercial clients looking to make use of a reputable, reliable scrap metal merchant. The Sullivan name has become synonymous with fairness, and we’ve been paying top scrap metal prices to South London residents since back in the early 1960s.

With instant payment options and a friendly approach to customer service, it’s no wonder we’re popular not just in our immediate locale, but nearby areas like Crystal Palace, Streatham, Mitcham, Bromley & Beckenham.

We purchase all forms of scrap metal, including copper, brass, lead, aluminium, stainless steel, PVC copper cables, catalytic converters, motors and zinc. And to help you deal with larger consignments, we provide scrap metal collections at your convenience, as well as roll-on/roll-off bins if you’re looking for a way to manage a steady stream of scrap metal generated during ongoing works.

D Sullivan Metals also pays top scrap metal prices for car parts, so don’t hesitate to contact us if you have left over parts such as alloy and steel wheels, car batteries, starter motors, alternators and catalytic converters.

How You Can Make Money via Scrap Metal Recycling

Bring any quantity of scrap copper, aluminium, brass, lead, steel or zinc to our Croydon scrap yard, located on Farnley Road, or contact us to arrange scrap metal collections or the delivery of a roll-on/roll-off bin.

  • 2% fee

If you opt to bring a passport, please also bring a supporting utility bill dated within the last three months which contains proof of address.
