Welcome to the website of Sydenham Scrap Metals. We cover South East London as scrap metal merchants and have done since first starting out as far back as 1954. With 65 years of trade and industry experience behind us, we have experience in handling all scrap metals types for small business, major organisations, the trade and the general public. We also accept or collect scrap cars, runners or non-runners, and with or without an MOT certificate.
Everything we do as a company comes back to scrap metal recycling and we have some of the highest recycling rates in our region – currently in excess of 90%. Sydenham Scrap Metals trade as proud members of the British Metal Recycling Association (BMRA).
The BMRA is a trade association that represents the UK’s £7billion scrap metal sector.
Areas we cover as scrap metal merchants include Anerley, Bromley, Catford, Dulwich, East Dulwich, Forest Hill and Norwood. However, we happily travel all other locations in South East London and, for larger consignments, will travel further into Home Counties. Sydenham Scrap Metals is a conscientious company with a keen approach to environmental care.
And all services provided tie in closely with our company motto:
RECYCING – IT’S WHAT WE DO
Our company first started out in the early 1950s under the management of Fred Puttick, the grandfather of Michael Longford who runs the company today. What started out at a very small site with just two employees has grown in size to the point where we now have 7 personnel. This means we’re still very much a small company, attentive enough to provide a more personalised service, but large enough to cater for even the biggest business clients.
Michael began at Sydenham Scrap Metals at the age of 14, on Saturdays or whenever time allowed. He now runs the company and moved it to larger premises just down the road from our original site in 2010. Today, customers and clients regard us as the most innovative and forward-thinking scrap metal merchants in the area but one thing still stays true.
We’re still very much a family-run business that always has your interests at heart.
SCRAP METAL COLLECTIONS
Like all scrap metal merchants in Sydenham and the surrounding areas, our core business is the collection of ferrous and non-ferrous scrap metal. Customers and clients have the option to bring their metals to our yard on Burnham Way for weighing or, if they prefer, we can supply them with roll-on/roll-off containers for use onsite. Our company offers daily collections for containers and has ample resources to always replace those we take away.
All scrap metal received at our yard in Sydenham undergoes screening and processing with a view to recycling as much material as possible and putting it into secondary production.
SCRAP CAR COLLECTIONS
Subject to the availability of a driver and vehicle, we collect scrap cars in Sydenham and the surrounding Anerley, Bromley, Catford, Dulwich, East Dulwich, Forest Hill and Norwood areas. We pay top prices for scrap metal and scrap cars based on current industry rates. If you have a non-runner, an MOT failure or any other type of end-of-life vehicle, we come out to recover it and pay by bank transfer, by cheque or with a pre-paid Tuxedo money card.
And, as one might expect from Sydenham’s most reputable scrap metal merchants, we help the customer in completing all required DVLA paperwork and with submitting it.
