A & G Metals buys, processes and sells scrap metal, to enable our clients to meet their important environmental aims and objectives.

There are many ways metals can be reused, by recycling and re-purposing materials such as aluminium, copper, steel, brass, and iron.

In fact, this sort of scrap metal can be processed and reused multiple times, to manufacture new metal sheets or to produce car body parts, trailers and a wide range of other machinery parts for example.

The wonderful thing about scrap metal recycling is that it does not reduce the quality of the resulting component, which can be as hard, pure and durable as required.

Recycling scrap metal is economically viable, as well as environmentally relevant.

Clearly, our work to process and sell scrap metal makes a substantial difference to efforts to reduce the amount of waste that goes to landfill.

However, it is also important to note that the way in which we collect and sell recyclable metals, also helps to reduce both mining and production of new materials. This represents an important energy saving, reducing emissions and assists companies to support the global sustainability agenda.


For all your scrap metal supply chain needs – we buy and sell scrap metal – and import and export scrap metals worldwide.
