While we try to cater to all metal & recycling streams there are some products GMS are unable to accept or products that need to be discussed with our team prior to delivering the product to our yards. This is due to the health & safety concerns associated with these product streams. These items include: 

Gas/LPG bottles, tanks (including those in cars) & batteries –  please contact us  prior to delivery of these items so we can advise necessary safety precautions for GMS to accept these:

The tank must be empty and have additional visible holes punctured in the tank to ensure this is safe to go through our shredding process. Our team may request you pull out the fuel or gas tank on-site to confirm if it is empty and safe to accept. 


Single-use and lithium batteries. These have a significant fire risk and need to be dealt with in a way that is safe for the public and the recyclers.

Decramastic roofing tiles – GMS will accept these tiles provided you are able to supply our office with an asbestos clearance certificate

GMS will not accept stolen goods.

Vehicles/machinery containing petrol/diesel/LPG or waste oils.

Excessive non/metallic rubbish will not be tolerated in deliveries to our sites.

Paint tins – will only accept if they have little to no paint residue.

Fire extinguishers – must have the valve/hose removed on top or have a hole punctured in it. This is to ensure it has depressurised and is safe for our team and machinery to handle.
