Scrap Metal Merchants

Since we were first established in 1918, J Blackburn & Sons Ltd has been developing processes and expertise in a wide array of scrap metal recycling services. Based in South Yorkshire, UK, our reputable company deals in scrap metal for clients and customers throughout the UK and across the world. We pride ourselves on our first-rate recycling services, our use of the very latest scrap metal recycling equipment and our many years of trade experience.

Our many buyers include refineries, smelters and foundries. They are based in the UK, Europe and the Far East, which enables us to quote competitively to scrap merchants, small businesses and contract work. Whatever your requirements or supply of scrap metal, we are sure to have the relevant experience to provide you with an outstanding service. 

A family-owned metal merchant business in its third generation, J Blackburn & Sons Ltd deals primarily in all grades of non ferrous scrap metal and a variety of cables for recycling and processing. We recycle all grades of copper, brass, bronze, aluminium, lead and nickel alloys. Over the years, our reputation for being professional and experienced metal merchants has grown, and so has the business! In 2006, we relocated to a state-of-the-art unit in Barnsley, to accommodate the growing needs of our business. In Spring 2012, we expanded further by purchasing the adjacent unit, which doubled our working space to a huge 10,000 square feet. This significant growth in premises has allowed us to lead the way in scrap metal recycling and provide an excellent and efficient service to all of our customers. 

As well as purchasing and recycling scrap metal from merchants and businesses, we also have high-tech processing equipment to allow us to produce end products to refinery and foundry standards. Our cable granulation plant is central to this. We pack and batch processed and segregated material, ready to dispatch across the world. By processing vast amounts of metal, our recycling services are not only good for the scrap metal market, but are fantastic for the environment!

In scrap metal recycling, we understand the importance of keeping abreast of market prices and changes. We access the live London Metal Exchange market prices, so you can be assured that you are getting the best deal for your scrap metal. We also offer a range of payment methods, such as bank transfer or a crossed cheque. ISO 9001 2015 Certification was achieved in April 2018.
