Autosave has provided a local scrap metal collection service to commercial customers in the Greater Manchester area for many years. Not only are we fully compliant with the Scrap Metal Dealers Act 2013 (SMDA), we understand the best ways to both collect and recycle scrap metal in a safe and environmentally-friendly way, whilst aiming to make the whole process as efficient as possible for the customer.

We collect scrap metal from a variety of different sites, including:

  • Construction sites
  • Demolition sites
  • Factory clearance
  • Industrial units
  • Commercial premises
  • Recycling Facilities
  • Engineering and manufacturing facilities

Scrap Metal Skips

Autosave can provide scrap metal skips that get delivered straight to your site. Once these skips are filled, they will be transported back to our recycling facility to be weighed. Upon weight confirmation, we will then provide you with a fast same day payment. It's a quick and easy way to recycle your scrap metal, and we do all the heavy lifting. Or we can create an account and send a monthly itemised statement and corresponding payment.
