Scrap Dealing

I have a load of scrap copper I want to sell. Someone told me recently that you need to apply for a license to see scrap to a scrap dealer, has anyone got any info on this or sells any scrap themselves?

There's another scrap metal merchant at Harold's Cross bridge - just beside Gordons Fuel Depot and the Glimmerman pub. I've never had any dealings with them personally, but I'm sure it's be worth getting a price from them.

I got the number for that place in ranelagh so I'll give them a call tomorrow. Also got a number for the place in Hammond lane so I'll get a price off both of them. Saw in the golden pages they take sheathed cable too which is handy as I have a load of that which I wasn't going to be bothered stripping.

It's a hard place to find ,you would be best to find it on a map before you head over. It's up a small alley and a couple of sharp turns,off ranelagh's main street.

Mind were you go with scrap copper ,you can be ripped off in a second.
I was quite happy with the guy in ranelagh ,I've been ripped off a couple of times elsewhere and it's hard to deal with scrap merchants once your stuff is on the scales.

The only place I've been to is hammond lane. seems a decent enough set up. But I suppose there no real way of knowing if the scales in calibrated in their favour at all (not suggesting it is)
