What is Scrap Plate & Girder?

You may be wondering what scrap Plate Girder we take… Well, basically ANYTHING Plate Girder that needs recycling because it’s no longer fit for reuse or is a danger… With recycling ALL KINDS of metal it doesn’t matter what grade or material you have.

Plate and girder scrap is exactly what it says on the tin, Scrap girders are usually found in construction, Support beams, building framework, and scrap plates can be found in similar places, for tough, heavy duty flooring, foundation wall support, roadwork floor covers etc.

Other things that can often be purchased at Plate & Girder prices are Angle iron and channel iron. They have to be good gage steel/iron to qualify for plate and girder pricing. Under 6ft is usually best to avoid the need of processing but we take all lengths and quantities of both scrap plates and scrap girders.
