How We Work

Recycling with Jarvis Metals is easy

We are easy to find in the centre of Shrewsbury and open 7 days a week. Just come into the yard where your metal will be weighed and you will be given the best price in the area.
We can collect depending on items and volume – contact us for details.
We can provide skips in a variety of sizes and we can also arrange to collect your waste material from your premises if required.

Once your material is on site, it will be weighed and the weight recorded using our advanced weighbridge facility.

The price we pay is dependent on the weight and type of material – we always pay top prices.

Any mixed material or composite pieces will be graded and categorised in different metals for maximum return for our customers.

All material is processed using state of the art recycling and processing equipment including secure destruction of any sensitive or confidential equipment or material.


Full documentation is provided so that all material can be traced through the recycling process. Customers can be assured that certification will be issued for any items being processed when secure destruction is required.

All operations are monitored by our quality assure procedures.

We pay by cheque – which is printed and handed to you straight away.

No scrap dealer is allowed to pay by cash – as of October 2013 all fully licensed scrap dealers require photo ID for all transactions of scrap metal and cars and can no longer pay customers in cash.
