scrap metal


According to The BMRA (British Metal Recycling Association), in 2005 13 million tonnes of metal was recycled in the UK. Around 40% of this was used in the UK with 60% exported worldwide.

At Sackers we’ve been dealing in scrap metal since 1929. We can arrange for collection using our skips, flat bed and bulker vehicles; or accept deliveries of all grades and all sizes to our site in Great Blakenham, Suffolk. We have the capability of processing almost all types of ferrous and non-ferrous metals ready for the smelting of new materials; metal is segregated, cleaned and processed to the highest specification possible using the latest technologies. Our metal shredder processes up to 300 tonnes of metal per day. We are experienced in the preparation of metal to internationally recognised grades and get the best possible prices from our network of contacts worldwide.

Take a look through this section at other scrap metal services we offer; End of Life Vehicles, Electronic Waste and whole plant dismantling and disposal; talk to us about any scrap metal needs you have and we’ll be happy to provide a service to suit you.

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