Our Facilities & Services

Whilst our core business is the recycling of scrap metals, Drapers also offer a waste management and metal recycling service to meet the demands of a wide range of industries.

Over the years, we have recycled everything from steam trains and aeroplanes, to trawlers and even a Cold War submarine. Whatever comes our way, we can deal with it. With a wealth of experience, modern facilities and a business built on four generations of know-how, Drapers is a name to be trusted.

Based in Raven Street in Hull on a site extending over three acres, we strive to offer the very best of customer service, As an independent family owned company our long term strategy is to create a recycling centre of excellence . We recover thousands of tonnes of metal by buying all grades of ferrous and non-ferrous metal to crush, reprocess and sell for re-use in many different countries across Europe, and even as far afield as China.

Drapers are committed to a long-term programme of investment in staff, equipment and facilities.
