A family-run business since 1979

At Seaham Metals Limited we have more than 3 decades of recycling scrap metal experience. Over the years we have seen our scrap yard grow in size. To accommodate this, we have a 40-tonne weighbridge which makes it quick and easy to weigh off scrap metal brought into our yard. Following changes to the scrap metal dealers act, in 2012, we require a photographic ID when processing payment, so please make sure you bring this along with you so payment can be completed swiftly. Payment methods include same-day bank transfer or cheque. We have a range of large skips that can be hired out for large collections of scrap metal, please get in touch for skip prices and availability
