Welcome To Drapers

Our wealth of experience in scrap metal recovery and recycling dates back to 1922, when we started our business in Hull ninety-five years ago. As a Yorkshire business, Drapers and Son have a very strongly established reputation that extends nationally and beyond.

Based in Raven Street in Hull on a site extending over two acres, Drapers handle waste from a wide range of metals including iron, steel, copper, brass, lead, aluminium and stainless steel. We provide a comprehensive waste management and metal recycling service to meet the demand of a wide range of industries.

Drapers Continues To Invest Despite Brexit Uncertainty

Despite the uncertainty surrounding Brexit, at Drapers we continue to invest in our site, our facilities and technology and to evolve our business.

An Atlas 350 MH Material Handler, which has recently arrived in our yard is a great addition to our existing equipment, as it has been specially developed to give great optimised handling. Designed and manufactured in Germany, it is equipped with a powerful engine and has a high performance scrap grab handler. We chose it because it’s one of the best scrap handlers on the market and we are very pleased with its performance. It makes quick work out of handling the most heavy and awkward types of scrap metal here at our yard.

At Drapers, our skip loader vehicles are also a very important part of our business. We have recently expanded our extensive fleet by adding another two skip loaders. These advanced newcomers are rugged and durable and we will certainly be putting them through their paces. Already they are making light work of loading, unloading and reloading our skips. This makes it much more cost effective for us to collect and move our customer’s scrap metal.

At Drapers, we are continually looking at ways of improving what we do. Our investments in our site are not just limited to improving our yard. We are also upgrading our IT system and we aim to evolve it as our business grows.

Our focus is to provide the very best scrap metal services and our continued investment at Drapers is to ensure that we are always evolving our business, to make sure that we provide our customers with the highest level of service.
