Dunmow Group are able to accept all types of ferrous and non-ferrous metals for scrap metal recycling. We have three scrap yards across Essex; Chelmsford, Colchester and Clacton. We have built a strong and trusted reputation within our community and the whole of Essex with over 30 years of experience, unbeatable customer service and knowledge like no other.
We accept scrap metal from the general public as well as commercial businesses. So if you are an electrician with cable, a plumber with brass and copper or a fabricator with iron we can recycle your scrap metal for you.
Our central scrap yard in based in Chelmsford, which operates with a state of the art weighbridge facility. With the metals area separate from our waste transfer station, this allows us and our customers free-flowing access to all vehicles entering in and out the scrap yard resulting in no queues behind other tipping vehicles.
We have three scrap yards across Essex; Chelmsford, Colchester and Clacton. To scrap your metal at our yard you need to provide a photo ID, so please bring along your drivers license or passport and a utility bill with your current address.
We can accurately measure how much metal has been brought into us. If you have a large amount of ferrous scrap metal, we can weigh the metal whilst still in your vehicle on our weighbridge; we also have smaller weighing scales if you have a smaller load of non-ferrous scrap metal.
Once we have weighed your metal and given you our competitive pricing, we can offer you a same-day payment with an instant bank transfer directly paid into your bank account. We are currently working on issuing BREAD mastercards- we will keep you updated on when this payment method is complete.

If you find you have a large quantity of metal and can't get it to us, give us a call and we will be happy to come and collect it from you.
You can also call our metals team with any general enquiries or pricing information. If you are opening an account under a company name, you will be required to complete an account opening form.

Scrap metal prices fluctuate daily, although the pricing you receive is based on the weight and grade of your metal.
Simply put, ferrous metal contains iron whereas non-ferrous metal does not. Ferrous metals also tend to hold a lower value compared to non-ferrous, this is because those with no iron content are resistant to corrosion.
We have smaller weighing scales for if you have a smaller load of non-ferrous scrap metal. It's a quick and easy way of getting the exact weight of your metal for pricing.
