makes and models of vehicle, and others deal only in certain types such as Japanese car parts
and Swedish. The yards provide very cheap scrap metal from 4x4 SUV’s, Cars. We mainly
deal in scrap for cars and commercial Vans only.
So, what Is A Scrap Yard?
Scrapyards are run by scrap metal merchants who acquire scrap metal in the forms
of old, unwanted vehicles and building supplies. They then sell the metal on to
be recycled and made into new products. Crushers are used to make the metal compact
and some will even melt the metal down. All the good condition parts are up for
sale beforehand. Smaller scrap yards are often open to customers to browse and purchase
individual items, even dismantling the parts themselves, however be warned they
can be dirty places so make sure you wear old clothing should you attempt this yourself.
Larger scrap yards, however, often sell metal only in bulk and in large quantities.
The scrap metal is sold by weight, as opposed to wreckers who sell each item for
it’s individual value.
Scrap yards are known by many other names as well such as:
Car Breakers, wreckers, salvage yards, spares yards, repairs yards, junk yards,
scrap metal yards, auto scrap yards, auto recyclers and motor salvage yards.
Regulations for Scrap Yards
The government have now enforced that all UK scrap yards are to be ATF (Authorised
Treatment Facility) regulated to comply with environmental agency standards. This
has been set up to ensure that there is no unwanted waste and that proper measures
are taken to dispose of all unwanted materials in an environmentally friendly manner.
