Metcollect Limited was founded in 2014 by a former tradesman, who became frustrated with the amount of time and effort required to achieve the best price for his scrap copper. Today Metcollect Limited has expanded its collections to include electrical cable, aluminium and other metals.

Metcollect is the largest cable recycler in Northern Ireland and offers the best prices for scrap copper cable on the island of Ireland, coupled with a fast & efficient collection service.

We also offer a cable drum recycling service which includes free collection. The only company in Northern Ireland able to offer this.

The team who run Metcollect Limited, believe in paying market leading prices for scrap metals from tradespeople - without them having to endure the untidiness of it lying around their houses, or the time, effort and cost to take it to their local scrap merchant.

Metcollect Limited has a fleet of collection vehicles, state of the art processing facilities and a fully automated payment system to pay you quickly once your scrap metals have been collected.

Our considerable investment in technology means you can view and change your payment info, access past payments and waste transfer notes and get real time updates on the time of your collection and you can do all of this from your phone.

At present we cover Northern Ireland, but will soon be expanding into the Republic of Ireland and the UK.

• Over 500 customers
• 1000 bins in regular use
• 5 collection vehicles
• Largest cable recycler in NI
