Scrap Metal Recycling Bolton – E Platt & Sons

Welcome to E Platt & Sons, Bolton’s oldest scrap metal merchant. We buy scrap metal from the public and trade alike, offering a Drive-Thru drop off at our Waterloo St depot and a collection service for larger quantities. We buy all types of metals such as lead, brass, aluminum, stainless and copper. eg, copper tube, copper cylinders, braziery copper, bright copper wire etc. In addition to non ferrous metal, we also buy ferrous metals ( steel & iron ) at competitive prices.

We are committed to obtaining and passing nothing but the very best prices to each and every one of our customers, this is why we do not charge for skip hire or collection, meaning you get 100% of the scrap value, whatever scrap metal you have.

We have invested in a state of the art cable granulation plant which allows us to process all grades of cable ourselves and pass on the prices to customers, meaning we pay the best prices in the area guaranteed.
