What is scrap Aluminium?

You may be wondering what scrap Aluminium is and what we take… Well, basically ANY Aluminium that need recycling because it’s no longer fit for reuse… With recycling ALL KINDS of metal it doesn’t matter what grade or material you have.

There are many things made out of aluminium because it is a strong, yet light metal. Things that are commonly made out of aluminium are: aluminium ladders, scrap scaffolding tubes, scrap cooking pans, signs, scrap greenhouse, Stairlifts, door handles, shop windows frames, and much more.

For clean Aluminium scrap prices the metal needs to be free of any steel/plastic/glass/wood. Aluminium containing steel will be classed as Irony Aluminium, See prices Below.
