We buy Scrap Metal and Scrap cars for the best prices in Workington

Workington is a metal-buying site, paying the best prices for scrap metals and End-of-Life Vehicles (ELVs) and accepting waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE).

The site buys all types of ferrous and non-ferrous metals from traders, businesses and members of the public. Materials are bought in over our modern weighbridge system, recording the process and showing visible weights for total transparency. The site also collects and buys ELVs and accepts household WEEE, including TVs, IT equipment and white goods.
