Thinking of trading your scrap metal? Here’s what you need to know.
Whether you’re a tradesperson, business or homeowner, recycling scrap metal is an easy and convenient way to make a little extra money and, of course, has tremendous benefits to the environment as well.
Where to take your scrap metal
The scrap metal industry is tightly regulated in the UK, and those laws are in place to protect you, so it is essential that you look for a licensed waste transfer station.
Here at Entrec we have access to top of the range, specialist equipment, enabling us to reliably and efficiently dispose of almost all scrap metal. We are fully licensed by the Environment Agency Wales under Waste Management Licence EAWML 37267 and have a waste carrier licence CB/QM3288LX. Entrec is also the main registered Authorised Treatment Facility in the North Wales area for the recycling of end of life vehicles; ensuring vehicles are recycled in an environmentally friendly manner.
Get the best price for your scrap metal
Metal prices fluctuate often, so be wary of companies that advertise standard prices on their websites as this often means that you won’t get the best deal.
We encourage you to get in touch with the scrap dealer and ask for an up-to-date price.

When deciding where to take your scrap metal, you should also look into how payment will be made to you.
At Entrec, customers attending site in person can be paid immediately by cheque or our cash card facility allowing cash to be obtained from any ATM machine. All our regular account customers are paid within a maximum period of seven days.
