Metal Recycling Solutions

We can collect metal for recycling FREE of charge across Essex



We can either collect your metal for recycling free of charge, provide you with a free of charge skip or you can drop your scrap metal to us, again free of charge.

The environmental impact of extracting and producing metals is huge. Recycling metal produces a fraction of the fuel and environmental impact than manufacturing metal from scratch.

When we take in your metal waste, whether it’s from a scrap yard or from a domestic source, we separate the different metals so that they can be sent for further recycling. This diverts waste from landfill and allows scrap metal to be returned for use in manufacturing industries.

We take reclaimed iron, cast iron, aluminium, copper, brass and lead from Chelmsford and the rest of Essex. Our facilities even allow us to accept steel, cables and cars for recycling. If you’d like more information about our metal recycling service and our waste transfer centre, or if you’d like to arrange for us to collect your metal waste.


Hazardous Metal Recycling

The only metals which are not recyclable are hazardous, such as Uranium and Plutonium however we don’t expect to see much of this radioactive material in Essex!

In addition to these, Mercury is classed as hazardous which can be found in thermometers, barometers and fluorescent lights which we can dispose of safely.

The last and more commonly used hazardous metal is Lead. Although this is commonly used, it is classed as hazardous if ingested or inhaled.

Lead acid batteries for example need to be disposed of safely as they pose an environmental risk in liquid form which is another product Dunmow Group can arrange safe disposal of.
