Scrap Metal is another great way to help raise funds for your club or organisation. It is relatively easy to organise, and it follows the same ethos as the clothes and mobile phone collections. The club is not asking people to donate money they are only looking for people to donate their unwanted scrap metal items.
Most people have some sort of scrap metal in their homes which they no longer use and often people are paying to have these items removed. Why not organise a scrap metal collection for your club and get funds for something which otherwise could end up in a landfill?
For scrap metal collections we recommend giving people a bit of notice, so they can organise the scrap metal for you.
On the day we provide you with a large skip, once the skip is full we will remove the skip to a facility where it is weighed. The skip is then emptied at a recycling facility, any items which are deemed not to be scrap metal are weighed and deducted from the overall total. Payment is made on a per tonne basis. Please contact us by email or phone for up to date scrap metal prices.
It is recommended that you hold the collection over a couple of days to ensure that you can collect the maximum amount of scrap metal.
Many clubs and organisations have held scrap metal collections along with mobile phone and clothing collections at the one fundraising event ensuring maximum funds received through recycling over the shortest period of time. It is easier for to them all at one time than asking volunteers to come back over several weekends for the different types of collections.
Please be aware that minimum tonnage is required. For further information on this please feel free to contact us by phone or email.
