About Bendalls Metal Recycling...


We deal in all types of scrap metal and are happy to buy any quantity. Our staff are able to advise on collections if transport is not available.


As a registered scrap yard, we operate to strict guidelines to ensure good environmental practice.

Two members of the team are holders of the industry standard waste management qualification.

Bendalls has a full Waste Permit and is an Upper Tier Waste Carrier.

All customers are issued with a Weighbridge ticket forming an auditable paper trail.


We operate two digital Weighbridges at our site. The 50 tonne Weighbridge is designed to be used for large heavy loads of ferrous metals. The smaller 6 tonne scales are used for smaller amounts and non-ferrous metals.

Scrap Cars

Bendalls specialise in scrap cars. We are an Approved Treatment Facility (ATF). A specially designed de-pollution rig is on site to ensure that End of Life Vehicles (ELV) are scrapped in accordance with regulations. After identity checks the vehicle is removed, dealt with in an environmentally responsible way and the relevant authorities are informed that the vehicle is scrapped. A Certificate of Destruction (COD) is issued for the customers records.

Car parts and spares are available. Please contact the office to see if the part you require is in stock.

Identity Checks

We are pleased to be part of a pioneering scheme launched in conjunction with the Forest of Dean Police, Forest of Dean Council and two local scrap yards, whereby we have agreed to request a proof of identity from anyone wishing to sell scrap material to us. Scrap metal theft is a nationwide problem and this initiative is designed to combat this.

Skip Hire

Bendalls can supply skips in a range of sizes from 2yrd to 40yrd roll-on roll-off. Our customers range from householders and local builders to nationwide building contractors and demolition companies.
