Sell Scrap Metal With Morecambe Metals

At Morecambe Metals, we deliver exceptional scrap metal recycling services to accommodate both ferrous and non-ferrous metals. Our acceptance policy includes iron, steel, copper, lead, and everything in between. As dedicated scrap metal buyers, we strive to provide our customers with the fairest prices so they receive the best value for the metals they want to recycle.

We understand the importance of convenience when you sell scrap metal, and that’s why our commitment to customer satisfaction goes far beyond competitive pricing. We offer a highly efficient scrap metal collection service aimed at streamlining the recycling experience, allowing you to easily and responsibly dispose of your metal waste whilst reducing any inconvenience to your business.

Why Choose Morecambe Metals as a Metal Scrap Buyer?

Our goal is to make the recycling process as hassle-free and simple as possible. When you choose Morecambe Metals as your trusted scrap metal buyer, you not only gain access to a wide-ranging acceptance of metals but also benefit from our competence, extensive experience, honest prices, and professional services.

By employing advanced machinery and equipment, we can provide a variety of services ranging from Eddy Current Separation to scrap metal shredding, making every separation efficient and every metal worth its maximum value. We then engage in the processing of metals to obtain new materials like shredded aluminium or steel, which is extremely advantageous.

Metals can be recycled multiple times without losing their properties, so by following this process, we are able to sell scrap metal again, positively contributing to the environment. As a family-run business, prioritising sustainability is particularly important to us.

On top of this, when you choose to sell scrap metal to us, rest assured that we provide a transparent audit trail and fully compliant documentation, offering you peace of mind. In fact, as scrap metal buyers, we comply with all Duty of Care licences and hold full authorisation as a scrap metal dealer, which means we:

  • Carry out all transactions under Duty of Care requirements.
  • Record all purchases in our systems.
  • Keep both manual and electronic records of all weighbridge transactions.
  • Track all our vehicles via GPS.

The Importance of Holding a Scrap Metal Dealer Licence

Legally selling scrap metal requires two types of licences for scrap metal dealers, whether they are buyers or sellers: site licences and mobile collectors’ licences.

  • A site licence allows dealers to operate only at the specified location, which is restricted to the address stated on the license.
  • A mobile collectors’ licence allows the business to operate within the local authority area where the license was granted. If a dealer operates in different areas, they will need separate licences from each respective authority.

Both licences are valid for three years and need renewal at the end of this period. As we stated, at Morecambe Metals, you can rest assured that we offer full transparency across the entire process and hold the necessary licences and compliant documentation that qualify us as authorised scrap metal dealers.
