We buy and recycle

Scrap metal is divided into two types: ferrous and nonferrous. Ferrous scrap metal consists of scrap iron and steel. This type includes scrap from old cars, household appliances, steel beams, railroad tracks, ships, food packaging and other containers. Ferrous scrap metal accounts for the largest volume of metal scrapped world-wide.

We follow the London Metal Exchange and any movement is reflected in our pricing on a daily basis.

Lelo Metal Recycling recycles around 15,000 tonnes of ferrous metals and 8,000 tonnes of non-ferrous metals per year. Much of it is exported for reuse in further metal manufacture.
