Scrap Metal Buyers in Stoke-on-trent

Here at Hartley’s we buy all grades of ferrous metals, such as steel and iron, as well as non-ferrous grades such as copper, aluminium, and stainless steel and vehicles that are no longer considered road worthy.

Collecting and recycling these metals helps to protect the environment. By utilising secondary metal materials we lessen the need to mine natural resources, such as iron ore, or nickel, that would be used to manufacturer new metal compounds.
