SCRAP METAL COLLECTION SERVICE
We offer a local scrap metal collection service based in the Liverpool and Greater Manchester areas, covering collections in the North West, North Wales and West Yorkshire areas.
We provide bins and skips for waste metal collection in a range of sizes according to your needs, and offer a competitive collection service for your scrap metal, with no contract or tie-in required.
You can use the scrap metal collection service for all sizes of scrap metal from small production off-cuts such as swarf to large metal sheets or rods.
Any type of scrap ferrous metal such as alloy steel, carbon steel, cast iron and wrought iron or non ferrous metal such as aluminium, lead, copper, tin and zinc can be placed in the skips.
We weigh and pay for each scrap metal collection and provide you with all the required paperwork. Your scrap metal is weighed on our weighbridge which is independently checked and calibrated so you can be confident the measures are accurate.
Call us now to arrange your scrap metal collection skip:
Merseyside: 0151 955 3300
Greater Manchester: 0161 872 0466
We operate our business to ISO9001 quality standards, and will provide a full audit trail including weighbridge tickets and waste transfer notes for each collection.
S Norton & Co recycles scrap metals and so by using our scrap metal collection service, you are helping to ensure these valuable materials are recovered and not sent to landfill. By collecting your waste metals for recycling, you are helping to save energy used in the production of new metals. This energy saving can be as much as 95% for aluminium, 90% for copper and 60% for iron and steel (Source: BMRA 2016).
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Call us to discuss your requirements and we will arrange to deliver a suitable scrap metal collection skip directly to your premises.

Metals recycling protects the environment and saves energy.
Metals recycling protects the environment and saves energy. EU figures indicate that using recycled raw materials, including metals, cuts CO2 emissions by some 200 million tonnes every year.
Recycled metals do not require the extraction of non-renewable metal ores by extensive mining. As this mining often takes place in unspoiled landscapes, the ability to reduce such disturbance by reusing materials already in existence is a great benefit to the environment.
Mining inevitably disrupts wildlife, drainage and soils, as well as polluting the environment. Using secondary raw materials means less use of natural resources which would otherwise be needed to make new metal compounds such as iron ore in steelmaking or alumina and bauxite in aluminium smelting.
There are also other environmental benefits, for example, using recycled steel to make new steel enables reductions such as:
- 86% in air pollution
- 40% in water use
- 76% in water pollution*
