 With over 70 years of experience in Metal Recycling, F Watson & Sons based in Stone, Staffordshire, can recycle your metal waste and surplus metal products. We cover most areas within Staffordshire, Cheshire, Derbyshire, and the West Midlands, supporting private individuals and businesses of all sizes. 
You are welcome to deliver your materials to our recycling centre based in Stone, or we can arrange a direct collection from your premises, using one of our vehicles.

Business Skip Collection

Customers with larger quantities of waste metal products can use our skip delivery and collection service. We will bring one of our empty skips to your premises. Book in a collection once the skip is fully loaded; we will either take it away or replace it with an empty exchange skip.

We can supply skips in the following sizes:
8 yards
12 yards
20 yards
35 yards
Our largest skip is 40 yards.
