Our Story

From A One Man Band Covid Startup – To Multi Award Winning Team!

Scrap Local is a Lancashire based company that was founded by time-served scrap metal dealer and digital marketing specialist Martin Handley in July 2019.

After consolidating his 17 years industry knowledge & digital marketing skills into what is known as Scrap Local today, Martin has built a team that connects scrapyards to it’s customers effectively at scale with tech.

It’s been a rollercoaster start-up journey, that almost ended before it began due to launching just a week before the global pandemic in March 2020.

But after years of hard work and determination, we’ve thoroughly enjoyed building a sustainable business that makes an impact to so many individuals, business and more importantly the environment.

Throughout our early years of growth, we started to get a good reputation for ourselves in the industry and even won several prestigious awards in 2021.

We even made a tv appearance on channel 5’s “Car Pound Cops” explaining how Scrap Local helps clear nuisance scrap vehicles from the streets with our network.

We’re a team of ambitious, creative individuals who continually help thousands of customers get an amazing service from local scrapyard every day.

We love innovating for the recycling industry and aim to make a positive impact to the economy by creating a community of responsible recyclers.
