Welcome to Tin Man Scrap Metal Recycling.  We are a family owned business that was started by Mark and Melissa who have earned an excellent reputation in the area for being reliable, trustworthy and efficient.  You may have also seen us on Discovery Plus or Quest on the TV show Scrap Kings!

Mark and Melissa started the business in 2010, in their back yard shed.  A year later they were operating out of their first unit.  The business soon out grew that yard and now they are situated at their current site in Harpur Hill.


We offer the best way to dispose of your scrap metal waste in Derbyshire, High Peak and Cheshire.  Our metal is recycled to government requirements and all scrap is issued a 'Waste Transfer Note' which is a legal document when disposing of any material.  


Our yard is based in Buxton at Harpur Hill Business Park.  We are open to the public and to commercial businesses.  We will take anything from metal/brass ornaments to redundant machinery and site clearances.  Nothing is to big or too small.  We have a dedicated Customer Service team.


Tin Man Scrap is the only company in the area to be members of the BMRA - The British Metal Recycling Association.  Being a vetted member means that we maintain high standards, co-operate with local authorities and regulators, observe the highest standards of environmental care and have all the relevant licenses and insurances.  

We are registered with the Environmental Agency for the Handling and Storage of Scrap & transporting hazardous waste.  We are also registered and approved by the High Peak Borough Council as a registered Scrap Metal Dealer. We are a fully Licensed Waste Carrier and Broker.  We are fully insured and carry Public Liability Insurance, so you can be confident when working with our company.


We also take scrap cars.  Unfortunatly we don't dismantle or sell any parts.


To trade with us, we will automatically open you with an account to make it easy, fast and convieniant at every visit.  Just call up to our yard with your scrap metal.  From small amounts to skip loads, we can recycle it all.

Call us for the best prices on all metals!
