On the 1st October 2013, the Government imposed cash ban across the metal recycling industry in England and Wales means that cash can no longer be paid for scrap metal.

If you want to sell scrap metal to us it is also now a legal requirement for you to provide identification (ID).

Here at Stokesley Metals we can offer the following alternative forms of payment:

Payment options:

  • Same day transfer into a bank account (BACS)
  • Cheque payment
