Scrap metal bins
Scrap metal can pose a significant risk to everyone, from construction workers to small children. When metal piles up outside, it has the potential to rust, adding the risk of infection and poisoning to the already present risk of injury. If you have metal lying around unattended, you owe it to yourself, your workers, and your family, to get it cleaned up.
Scrap metal bins from WM Waste Management are the perfect solution for a range of applications, including:
- Building sites, housing developments, and renovations
- Warehouses, workshops, and other commercial ventures
- Farms and other places that have old machinery
If you deal with metal, or have a lot of it lying around taking up space, we can help. The scrap metal bin you hire will depend on a range of factors, including how much you want to throw away. If you are unsure about what size bin you need, get in touch with the friendly team at WM Waste Management.

What can go in a scrap metal bin?
Basically, if it’s metal and safe, we can recycle it, or dispose of it, responsibly with a scrap metal bin. Scrap metal is usually sorted into one of two categories:
- Ferrous: Metals that contain iron, and are at a higher risk of corrosion. These include stainless steel and wrought iron, and brass.
- Non-ferrous: These metals do not contain iron and are not magnetic. Examples include copper, aluminium, lead, zinc, and nickel.
Here are some examples of what can go in our scrap metal bins:
- Sheet metal and corrugated iron
- Brass and copper radiators, and other car parts
- Steel and iron, including stainless steel
- Copper used in plumbing and construction
- Scrap machinery and scrap whitegoods
- Batteries and other electrical items

What can’t go in a scrap metal bin?
There are certain items which cannot, under any circumstances, be thrown into a scrap metal bin. In order to keep yourself, your workers, and our staff safe, we have stringent restrictions on the following metal items:
- Paint cans filled with paint
- Gas tanks and bottles
- Rubber tyres (rims are fine)
- Any metallic vessel containing food waste, chemicals, or other dangerous liquids — including oil
If you need to dispose of metallic items that potentially fall within the restricted categories above, it’s best to get in touch with WM Waste Management Services. Our friendly customer service team will be able to advise you on the safest course of action.
