Scrap Metal Recycling in Croydon, Crystal Palace, Bromley & All Surrounding Locales | D Sullivan Metals Ltd

The great thing about scrap metal recycling is that metals can be re-used again and again without compromising their physical properties. And while steel is the most recycled material we accept at our Croydon scrap yard, our scrap metal merchants also purchase aluminium, brass, copper, lead and zinc. We also accept vehicle components such as catalytic converters, starter motors, alternators and alloy wheels, amongst other items. This makes us a one-stop metal recycling solution for clients in nearby areas like Beckenham, Bromley, Crystal Palace, Mitcham and Streatham.

By choosing to visit our scrap yard or arrange a scrap metal collection, you play a major part in protecting the environment, while getting financially rewarded for your efforts. Both domestic and commercial clients get paid every penny they deserve, as D Sullivan Metals is well-known for paying the best scrap metal prices you’ll find in the South London area.

When you visit D Sullivan Metals at our Croydon scrap yard, you not only keep natural resources in the ground, but reduce the amount of energy and emissions involved in manufacturing cycles. A knock on effect that our Beckenham, Bromley, Crystal Palace, Mitcham and Streatham clients have is the reduction of production costs for vital businesses, both local and positioned all across the globe. You also support an industry that creates a huge number of jobs.

Some quick facts on scrap metal recycling:

  • Copper use dates back more than 10,000 years of human history
  • People have been using lead since pre history
  • Using recycled metals cuts c02 emissions by some 200 million tonnes every year
  • The UK metal recycling industry adds more value to the economy than both the motor and aerospace industry combined

Domestic clients positioned in and around Beckenham, Bromley, Crystal Palace, Mitcham and Streatham can bring smaller consignments to our Croydon scrap yard for weighing and grading. Have a larger quantity that might prove difficult to transport? Give us a call to arrange scrap metal collections at a convenient time.

We Recycle All Scrap Metals

There are two categories when it comes to scrap metal: ferrous and non-ferrous. The former contains elements of carbon, such as carbon steel, alloy steel, and both cast and wrought iron. The latter takes in aluminium, brass, copper, stainless steel and zinc. Then there are precious metals, which are also non-ferrous, such as gold, silver, iridium and palladium.

D Sullivan Metals is well known for its competitive pricing and fast and friendly service, whatever the type of metal you bring to us. In some cases, we process it ourselves, and in others we visit licenced scrap metal recycling partners around Beckenham, Bromley, Croydon, Crystal Palace, Mitcham and Streatham with more advanced facilities.

From start to finish, scrap metal recycling includes:

  • Collection
  • Sorting
  • Smelting
  • Processing
  • Purification
  • Solidifying

Once scrap metal has been processed, it is transported to a distributor that ensures the right trades and industries have a steady supply to meet their manufacturing requirements; it may even head overseas. Many metals can be repeatedly recycled without the emergency of impurities.

Some of our clients regularly find themselves with large quantities of scrap metal on their hands. In these situations, we can supply a roll-on/roll-off bin which you can fill at your leisure, perhaps during the course of a domestic or commercial development you’re working on in Croydon or elsewhere in South / South East London. Once full, we’ll dispatch a team to collect it, and replace it with an empty one.
