Trusted Scrap Metal Merchants in Croydon | Phoenix Scrap Metals

Welcome to the online home of Phoenix Scrap Metals. Our scrap metal merchants are based in Croydon at a fully-equipped yard, welcoming domestic and commercial clients from all surrounding areas, including Beckenham, Thornton Heath and West Wickham. We purchase scrap metal of all quantities and types (ferrous/non-ferrous) at favourable rates, ensuring you get paid every last penny you deserve.

But how do our scrap metal merchants ensure the prices we pay out are fair? By using sophisticated weighing and grading technology, and closely monitoring the always-changing value of scrap metal on the national and international markets. Taking a strict and scientific approach to the task gives clients peace of mind, as they know they aren’t getting a general “guestimate” on their scrap metals’ value.

As registered scrap metal merchants, we take great efforts to ensure all the scrap we collect heads on to secondary use. We’re committed to following both industry regulations and a strict in-house code of conduct which puts the environment first; Beckenham, Croydon, Thornton Heath and West Wickham residents searching for a green minded recycling partner have found one in Phoenix Scrap Metals.


As a commonly available source of valuable rare metals, catalytic converters are always in demand. If you have a spent or otherwise unwanted catalytic converter, pay us a visit. We are constantly monitoring fluctuations in value, to ensure you get today’s price – and not merely a haphazard guess at what it’s worth (which experience shows never favours the seller).
