Amalgamated Metals Recycling, or AMR as we like to call ourselves, is a licensed metals recycling merchant. We collect, sort, process, recycle and resell recycled metal.


About Amalgamated Metals Recycling (AMR)

We purchase all forms of ferrous metals, such as iron and steel, and non-ferrous metals such as aluminium, copper, zinc, stainless steel, lead, nickel, brass, tin, bronze and more.

We have an amalgamated metal recycling plant and a scrap metal recycling plant that buys from a wide range of sources including the general public, local scrap metal traders, other recycled metal merchants, construction and demolition contractors, manufacturing companies, and government to name but a few. We buy any volume ranging from high tonnages to small quantities from individuals.

Sellers can deliver directly to us, or we can arrange collection of larger volumes. We have a vast fleet of trucks, trailers, skip bins and hook lift bins to provide you with efficient, reliable collection and/or delivery of materials. We have mobile balers, shears, croppers, gas cutters and heavy lift capabilities available on request for the collection of large loads and demolition contracts. We also place skip bins or hook lift bins on site for larger customers.

The metal is paid for by weight as measured by our accurate 60-ton weighbridges and smaller scales, all of which are SABS approved. Prices fluctuate according to both local and overseas metal markets, but we can guarantee that our prices are always highly competitive


The safety of our staff that handles the non-ferrous metals and customers is important to us. Our employees practice safety procedures and precautions in accordance with the Occupational Health and Safety Act. Inspections are conducted regularly by City Power, Telkom, Eskom and the Health and Emergency Services Department to ensure that our strict safety standards remain top of min.


Our honesty, integrity and service ethics are valued by our long-standing scrap metal recycling suppliers and customers. We are compliant and adhere to all the laws pertaining to buying and selling second-hand goods. Regular SAPS inspections help us ensure that no stolen material makes its way into our processes.
