Welcome to our organisation. You are about to find out how you can make a lot of money collecting scrap metal. The scrap metal industry in the UK enjoys £10 billion worth of turnover annually and it is surprisingly easy to get involved and start earning a piece of that. Depending on the amount of spare time you have, you can either get involved on a part time or a full time basis.
How much money can I make in the scrap metal industry?
At the lower end of the scale, if you got involved in your spare time, you could earn around £30 a day. That’s £210 a week, £900 a month or £10,800 a year (you can see how you can do this in case study 1 below).
At the higher end of the scale, if you got involved full time, you could earn much more!
The figures you will achieve will be based on how much time and effort you want to put in – feel free to check out these case studies:
- Case study 1 – an example of how to make a modest £30 with a few spare hours
- Case study 2 – an example of a small setup that we saw on a documentary on Channel 4
- Case study 3 – an example of a collector that works in the evenings that we saw on the same documentary
What makes this better than a normal job?
A key attraction to this industry is that you do not need to pass any exams to begin. You do not need to go to an interview. You do not need to report to anyone (or have anyone reporting to you) and can choose to work when and how you want. In short, you are working for yourself – a great position to be in. It can also be a very interesting industry to be in – finding the best sources of scrap metal, trying new ideas and seeing how much money you can make from different types of metal.
What do I need to get involved?
Another key attraction is that you don’t need much to begin. As a minimum you would need some way of transporting your collections. If you are starting at the lower end of the scale, a bike would suffice. At the higher end of the scale you would likely find a van useful. You would also need a bit of storage space – a shed or garage could be ideal at the lower end. As you progress to the higher end it may be worth hiring a lock-up area (plenty around at cheap prices after the recession).
When can I start?
You can literally start right away. We have a wealth of knowledge that will help you get started. All this knowledge is contained in our book which contains what you need to find out the following:
- How the scrap metal industry works
- Where to start collecting
- Which metals you can/should collect
- How much the different metals are worth
You will also learn some important points on making sure you do it legally (with scrap metal values remaining high, thefts of things like cables, drains and similar items rocketed in recent years and meant that the government brought in rules to stop this behaviour). Essentially this means that you (a) require a bit of paper work and (b) cannot be paid in cash anymore. However, given the amount of money that can be made, a bid of admin is no great issue.
Join us today and get immediate access to the following:
- Our book “How to Make Money From Scrap Metal” in PDF containing the following chapters:
- Introduction to the Scrap Metal Industry in the UK
- How the Scrap Metal Industry Works
- Metals That Can be Collected and How Much They Are Worth
- Abiding by the Law
- Concluding Thoughts
Chapter 1 explains about the background of the scrap metal industry and how it has really taken off as demand from countries like India and China has helped prices remain strong. We also explain how an interesting documentary on Channel 4 threw great light on the industry and those involved. We have three case studies on the site, showing how everyday people are making a lot of money.
Chapter 2 outlines how the scrap metal industry works and goes on to focus on the collection side of the industry. There are several ideas to help you locate the scrap metal for free in many cases. We also explain about what you may need in terms of transport and the importance of building business relationships.
Chapter 3 goes into more detail about the types of scrap metals that you should aim to be collecting and most importantly, the price you can expect to receive for selling the metal on to the scrap yards. We list the most common items that the metals can be found in and provide recent prices per kilogram.
Chapter 4 brings to the table some of the important administration points you need to know in running a business like this – in particular the key points about making sure you abide by the law and tax considerations.
Chapter 5 is a brief summary that confirms that the scrap metal industry is one where you can make a lot of money and that it’s also a great way to help the environment.
