Market prices for scrap metal change many times a day based on current market conditions. Bring your metals to our scrap yard in Croydon or have them collected from any location in Mitcham or South London, and we promise to pay the best available price at the time of the transaction. We’re a longstanding metal recycling company that has traded out of our current premises since 1978, and across London since the 1940s.
We buy the following types of scrap metal:
Aluminium – Brass – Copper – Lead – Steel – Zinc
In fact, D. Sullivan Metals Ltd buys all types of non-ferrous metals. These can come in the form of scrap copper tubes and offcuts, brass pipes and taps, zinc roof sheets and much more besides. If you have scrap alloy wheels, catalytic converters, starter motors, alternators or other metal car parts, we’ll offer you the best possible price for those as well.
Please contact us for an estimated price by weight or visit our scrap yard in person with your consignment. If you come to us as a commercial client, we can deliver roll-on/roll-off bins to sites in Croydon, Mitcham and South London for storing scrap metals until you have enough for us to collect them.
The nine decades we’ve spent in the field of metal recycling is our personal guarantee of satisfaction, and it explains why customers come back to use our services time and time again. Our yard has calibrated electronic scales to ensure that our customers are always paid the correct amount by weight.
We pay for scrap metal in the following ways:
Fast Bank Transfer
Pre-Paid Visa Card
We require one form of photo ID and one proof of address for you to use our onsite cheque cashing service. Since December 2012, it has been illegal to pay for scrap metal in cash but having an onsite agent available means you can still walk away with money in your pocket if that is what you prefer.
Ethical Scrap Metal Recycling
Have you ever wondered what our scrap yard does with collected metal? For our Croydon, Mitcham and South London customers, knowing we trade ethically is just as important as knowing we trade fairly. Typically, a scrap metal recycling company will have facilities for smelting materials, or it will send it to a location with a furnace. After forming blocks by melting down metal at high temperatures, other companies buy them.
Companies use these blocks by melting them down and turning them into products. These products include anything from the cans you buy food in, to parts for your car or your computer.
D. Sullivan Metals Ltd achieves excellent recycling rates and is a conscientious and ethical service provider that takes its environmental responsibilities seriously. By putting scrap metal into secondary production, we reduce the demand for newly produced materials and make an important contribution to the planet, protecting it for our future generations.
