We Buy Ferrous Metals & Non-Ferrous Metals

As a leader in the scrap metal industry, we buy both ferrous and non-ferrous metals in any condition here at The Scrappers Ltd. Although the weight price per tonne changes by the day, we can guarantee you that we pay the very best prices around.

Due to changes in legislation, you can no longer buy scrap metal with cash; we can, however, pay you by cheque on the day.

There are many companies that will only buy either ferrous or non-ferrous metals, but we are able to take both off your hands. We are Bolton’s leading buyer of copper, alloy, and iron, and we operate throughout the North West. If you have a large amount of the stuff we’ll even come and pick it up for free.


The Difference between Ferrous and Non-ferrous Metals

Ferrous metals are those that contain iron. They are both magnetic and corrosive, due to the high levels of carbon contained in the material. Some common examples of the ferrous metals that we frequently buy are:

  • Stainless Steel
  • Wrought Iron
  • Cast Iron

Non-ferrous metals do not contain iron, and are generally more resistant to corrosion and rusting. They are also usually lighter than ferrous metals, but just as strong. Not only are these types of metal commonly used for aircraft, but they are also often found in small electrical appliances as they are extremely pliable. Some of the non-ferrous metals we buy include:

non-ferrous metals

  • Copper & Copper Wiring
  • Aluminium
  • Lead
  • Zinc
  • Electrical Cable

Ferrous metals are normally a lot more common and easy to come by, as they don’t take long to be recycled. Ferrous metals, excluding aluminium, are generally a lot rarer; it takes much longer for these materials to be recycled.
