We buy Scrap Metal and Scrap Cars for the best prices in Northampton

Northampton is a metal-buying site, paying the best prices for scrap metals, End-of-Life Vehicles (ELVs) and waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE).

The site buys all types of ferrous and non-ferrous metals from traders, businesses and members of the public. Materials are bought in over our modern weighbridge system, recording the process and showing visible weights for total transparency. The site also buys ELVs with its own depollution line to strip ELVs before they are recycled at our Recycling Park. It also accepts household WEEE, including TVs, IT equipment and white goods.

Our Northampton site also processes waste streams for commercial clients. Its skilled team of recycling operatives process metals to be sent to our Recycling Park for recycling through our fragmentiser ahead of export for remanufacture - ensuring the best prices for materials.
