FURTHER INFORMATION
Here at Chard we have two separate weighing areas for weighing material. Our large 50T main weighbridge located next to our weighbridge office is for your general ferrous steel and scrap car weigh-ins along with larger non ferrous volumes. Our small scales are located next to the main weighbridge and this is the area for you to weigh your non ferrous material such as aluminium, copper, brass, batteries etc. We find that customers who have both ferrous and non ferrous are quicker weighing their non ferrous first and then weighing their ferrous steel afterwards.
WHAT WE BUY AT Chard
