Scrap Metal Collection Services for Nottingham & Leicester



Scrap Metal

Here at Wastecycle, we buy scrap metal and use it for metal recycling in Nottingham and Leicester. We aim to recycle as much scrap metal as possible, to ensure an eco-friendly and environmental solution to the excess waste in landfills currently.

What is scrap metal?

Scrap metal is any piece, sheet or composition of metal that is suitable for recycling and safe disposal. Wastecycle recycles both ferrous and non-ferrous metals.

Ferrous Metals

Ferrous metals are usually magnetic, and will typically contain iron, alongside properties of other metals. They are also very susceptible to corrosion, so it is important they are disposed of responsibly.

Some examples of ferrous metals are:

  • Iron
  • Steel
  • Scrap vehicles

Non-Ferrous Metals

Non-ferrous metals do not typically contain iron, are non-magnetic substances, and have a high resistance to corrosion. Though they are considerably tougher than ferrous metals, it is still a priority to ensure they are recycled swiftly for maximum re-usage.

Some examples of non-ferrous metals are:

  • Aluminium
  • Stainless steel
  • Copper
  • Brass
  • Cable
  • Lead
  • Nickle
  • Tin
  • Bronze

What does Wastecycle do for scrap metal?

Working with businesses and domestic customers alike, we help to collect and recycle scrap metal responsibly and efficiently. Our calibrated and highly accurate weighbridges make sure every bit of scrap metal we buy is weighed accurately, so that our customers will always get the correct price. Though most of our metal collections come from trade sources, we also purchase scrap metal from the public and domestic sources as well.

So, if you have a large amount of scrap metal that is suitable for recycling and disposal, get in touch and we can arrange for this to be collected from your site.

How to dispose of scrap metal

We can offer a variety of container and collections to suit your requirements, if you have large amounts of scrap metal that need collecting. You can also bring your scrap metal directly to one of our sites in Nottingham and Leicester.

We can also offer a total waste management service for all waste streams. If your waste contains valuable materials we will offset the cost of collecting and recycling your waste to reimburse you.
