We buy all types of scrap metal at our yards. This includes ferrous metals such as iron and steel, as well as non-ferrous metals, electrical goods, domestic appliances, catalytic converters and scrap autos. While we accept an extensive range of items, there are some we cannot accept. For more information on prohibited and restricted items, please see here.
We accept most ferrous metals (iron-based metals, which are generally magnetic), including domestic/household items, such as washing machines, bikes and autos, as well as all grades of heavy iron from construction, demolition, manufacturing and a diverse number of other sectors.
We buy all grades of non-ferrous metal in any form, including metals such as aluminum, brass, copper, lead, tin, titanium and stainless steel. Our local teams of non-ferrous metal specialists are able to quickly identify these metals in order to offer you a competitive price.
Examples of non-ferrous metals and goods:
• Alloy wheels
• Aluminum cans
• Electric motors
• Stainless steel
• Swarf (turnings, filings or shavings)
We operate one of the largest and most professional catalytic converter buying networks in the industry, enabling us to price and purchase both auto and industrial catalytic converters; subject to local laws and regulations.
We offer competitive prices on all makes and types of converters, with prompt payment and a fast service.
Large domestic appliances
Many EMR yards accept large domestic appliances. We are able to accept these from local authorities, take-back schemes and producer-compliance schemes as well as the general public.
Examples of large domestic appliances:
- Tumble dryers
- Washing machines
SMALL ELECTRICAL GOODS AND APPLIANCES
We accept small electrical goods and appliances at many EMR yards. We are able to accept these from local authorities, take-back schemes and producer-compliance schemes as well as the general public.

Just like many of the other materials that we accept, these appliances require specialist processing to safely recover the materials that they contain.
The following materials cannot be accepted because they remain the property of the original owner or user:
Gas cylinders - unless they have come through authorised routes
Gas cylinders can normally be returned to the supplier free of charge and dairy trolleys/cages, beer kegs/casks and shopping trolleys should be returned to the dairy, brewery or supermarket from which they originate.
The following additional items are prohibited. Due to our environmental permits we cannot accept these items at any of our yards:
Radioactive materials or containers
