scrap metal

Metal recycling / collection

Sackers began its life as a scrap metal merchant and as time’s progressed, so has our business. We now offer a total waste management service but still collect, recycle and supply quality recycled metal all over the world.

We work with you to arrange collection if it’s what you need – we’ll ensure that it suits you, offering a free site visit to ascertain your needs. Alternatively we accept all grades and sizes of metal loads at our site in Great Blakenham. Take a look at our site map and you’ll see where to come, the location of our weighbridge, and the facilities that we have to process the metals.

With current scrap car recycling technology, metals can be recycled indefinitely without losing any of their properties. In most cases Sackers scrap metal is shredded and sent to a steel mill where it can be reprocessed and used in the manufacture of goods such as new cars or construction materials.

In terms of trading in recycled metal, we supply internationally recognised grades of ferrous and non-ferrous metals worldwide in individual consignments or regular orders, working with our network of contacts built up over the years – since 1929.

With the help of Sackers and our supporters we have reached a little over 85% recycling rate.
