Welcome to Mainland Metals

Welcome to Mainland Metals in Christchurch.  We come to your commercial or residential site - anywhere in the South Island - weigh your unwanted products and give you the best price for your scrap metal.  We then recycle the scrap metal, so not only do you benefit, but so does the environment.


Unlike our competitors, we tailor our pricing to suit the diversity of our customers’ needs.  We do all the hard work for you, as we come to you and remove the unwanted scrap metal from your premises.  Call us to receive a professional opinion on your scrap metal recycling requirements. We can accurately price mass cleanups and are also experts at post-demolition removals. No job is too big or too small.


We are a family-owned and operated business that has been servicing Canterbury and the rest of the South Island in the metal recycling industry, for over 25 years.  The founders and owners of the business have built Mainland Metals up over the years into a thriving and successful business - one that plays an integral part in cleaning up the South Island.
