Scrap Metal Recycling

Walkden Metals provide you with a high quality recycling service with a professional and cost-effective approach to recycling all ferrous and non-ferrous metals.



As part of this service we can provide the necessary container bins or skips for you to collect the waste materials.


These can be easily collected by ourselves and replaced with replacement bins or skips. These collections will be coordinated with yourselves to meet your timescale.


Our experienced staff work with state of the art testing equipment to carry out on site testing of all your scrap for instant analysis of the metal it contains. This allows us to offer you the best price.

Some of the local areas we serve:

Bolton – Farnworth – Kearsley – Little Hulton – Little Lever – Swinton – Westhoughton – Worsley


Trade Waste: duty of care advice
The Duty of Care is a law which says that you must take all reasonable steps to keep waste safe. You must stop it escaping from your control. You must store it safely and securely. You must prevent it causing pollution or harming anyone.

The waste must be packed in suitable containers so that it cannot fall out, blow away or escape from the receptacle.

You must secure the waste against unauthorised removal as far as is reasonably practical. Security should be sufficient to prevent the breaking open of containers and removal of waste by vandals, thieves, animals, accident or weather.



You must ensure that the person/registered company removing your waste is either from a local authority or a licensed waste collection company. They will be authorised to remove your waste and dispose of it safely. You must provide a written description of your waste to the person who removes it. This is known as a waste transfer note and must be completed by both persons involved in the transfer.
