The way we are required to pay for your scrap metal has changed.
The Scrap Metal Dealers Act 2013 is the new legislation that Foulds Metal Ltd are now required to follow. The law requires that each customer must provide photo ID, such as a passport or driving licence, or 2 utility bills (less than 3 months old) for the same address. It is now also illegal to pay by cash for any form of scrap metal, so payment is made by cheque or direct to a bank account, for which we will require your account number and sort code.
The Registration Process

We buy a wide variety of scrap metals including:

Ferrous – mixed cast-iron, light iron, No1 & No2 steel, steel turnings, plate & girder, engines and more!
Non-ferrous – copper, brass/bronze, aluminium, lead, cables and more!

If you have small amounts of scrap metal you wish to dispose of we have a charity metal skip on site. Any items which are put into this skip are weighed in at the end of each day and all proceeds go to the RNLI! SO FAR WE HAVE MANAGED TO RAISE OVER £10,000 FOR THE RNLI. With your help we can increase this figure even higher! A BIG THANK YOU to all those who contribute!

We also offer a skip service for metals only, with skips ranging from 8 – 40 cubic yards.
