We are now buying surplus building materials

 We are now buying surplus Building Materials (plywood)

We recently removed some large machinery which was no longer being used at our Wembley Scrap Yard for more space, As we already deal with many builders we thought it would be a good idea to start buying unused building materials then selling them back on, rather than them just ending up in a skip.

As this is something new we are offering we thought it would make sense to start with something simple like 8' x 4' sheets of plywood, So if you have any surplus 8' x 4' sheets of plywood destined for the skip get in touch and we will offer a fair price for it.

Our Scrap Yard is based outside the Ultra Low Emission Zone

 A common question we are asked on the phone is Wembley Recycling Ltd aka Copper Recycling Wembley inside the ULEZ, Simple answer is "NO" we are not in the ULEZ and you will not be charged for going to our drop off point at 560 Market Way HA02BT as long as you take a route that is outside the ULEZ.

Copper price drop during June 2022

Copper prices dropped a fair bit during June 2022 as you can see in the graph below, hopefully they bounce back but this is never certain, copper prices are still pretty high compared to 2 years ago and you can still see good returns for your copper at the moment.

Getting the right weights Copper Cylinder Scrap

Getting the correct weights for copper cylinders aka hot water tanks can sometimes take a bit of guess work especially when they have lots of limescale inside, the foam insulation is usually 1-2 kgs depending on the size of the tank, as you see in the photos below we opened this copper tank as it was unusually heavy for a tank this size, my guess was 10kgs of limescale to a customer this seemed like a big deduction in weight so it made sense to remove the limescale there and then, the 2 piles of limescale that were removed from this tank actually weighed 13kgs, With the high prices of copper at the moment this could of worked out to be some pretty expensive but useless limescale.

Advice on getting best copper prices

 Here's a common mistake many customers make when dropping of their scrap copper, what they have done as you can see in the photo is wrapped the clean copper tube in tape to make it easier to handle and transport, at the same time they have unknowingly devalued the price of the copper as it is now classed as dirty copper due to the contamination of the tape, clean copper has to be 100 percent clean no paint, no plastic and no solder, It's can be a time consuming job removing all the tape from many bundles of clean copper so we advise to not put tape on the clean copper pipes in the first place, that way you can get the best prices for your copper.

Important Information regarding Calor Gas Cylinders

 We are sometimes asked if we can accept or collect color gas cylinders the answer to both of these questions is "No" as calor gas cylinders can not be scrapped and are banned from scrap yards but also we not authorised to handle or dispose them, we have included a letter from Calor Gas Limited with information on the correct procedure of disposing empty Calor Gas Cylinders, Hope you find this helpful.

Scrap Metal Yard later 9pm opening times.

 During the summer months we may keep our scrap metal yard open until 9pm,  These will be random days so the best thing to do would be to call us first to see if we are staying open later than our usual 7pm.

We decided this could be helpful to our customers that don't finish work until late and are unable to get to us before 7pm 

As usual we will be buying lead, copper, cables, brass and other non-ferrous metals and will make payments straight away.
