Need some extra cash after Christmas? You may be sitting on a hidden goldmine!

The holiday season has come and gone, leaving us with joyous memories and perhaps a few extra pounds around the waist. But what if we told you that there's a way to fatten your wallet too? Imagine turning your clutter into cash, and no, it's not some magic trick. Welcome to our scrap metal yard.

What Can You Scrap?

Wondering if your items are worthy? We accept all types of old appliances, broken tools, and unused car parts, there's a market for almost everything. Your trash is our treasure. Our process is designed to be hassle-free, ensuring a smooth experience from drop-off to payout.

One of the prime metals sought after in the scrap market is copper. Known for its excellent electrical conductivity, corrosion resistance, and malleability, copper is a staple in the electronics and construction industries. From electrical wiring to plumbing components, the demand for recycled copper remains consistently high, making it a valuable commodity.


Aluminium is another metal that holds significant value at our Scrap Yard in Portlaoise. Renowned for its lightweight and corrosion-resistant properties, aluminium is extensively used in the aerospace, automotive, and packaging industries. Recycling aluminium not only conserves energy but also reduces the need for extracting new raw materials, making it an environmentally responsible choice.


Brass, an alloy of copper and zinc, is yet another sought-after metal at A1 Metal Recycling Ltd. With its unique blend of durability, corrosion resistance, and appealing aesthetics, brass finds application in musical instruments, plumbing fixtures, and decorative items. Recycling brass not only contributes to sustainable practices but also offers a financial incentive to those looking to dispose of brass items.


Stainless steel, known for its strength, corrosion resistance, and hygiene properties, is a key player in the scrap metal market. Widely used in construction, kitchenware, and medical equipment, stainless steel maintains its value even after being recycled multiple times.
