About Us - Welcome to Yellow Brick Gold

Yellow Brick Gold is our precious metals department within Tin Man Scrap, Buxton. We are a family run business so we offer a friendly and personal service. It's run by partners Mark and Melissa - whom you might recognise from BBC1's Flipping Profit. It's been in operation since 2010 in the heart of Buxton, Derbyshire and we've been providing our area with the best recycling facilities ever since. As part of our recycling commitment we also recycle your precious metals.

We are a waste recycling company that is a proud member of the BMRA - British Metals Recycling Association - which is the UK's recognised group for all verified and checked scrap metal merchants who work to government legislation. We are registered with our local authority and as a scrap metal recycling facility and a waste carrier / broker with the environment agency. We hold all the relevant licenses and insurances needed to deal with your waste. You can be sure that Tin Man Scrap will work with you to provide the best service with a fast turnarund for your payment.

We use state of the art analysing equipment to test our metals. Long gone are the days of chemical and long drawn out acid tests. We have a laser gun that can analyse your precious metals in a matter of seconds, and it'll tell you exactly what you have. We do this while you wait and in front of our customers.

For those who aren't local who still want to use us, we offer a FREE no obligation postal service where you can send your metals special delivery. We'll analyse it the same day we recieve it and give you a quote. Please email us so we can send you details on how to sell your gold to us and what we need from you. If you are not happy for any reason, we'll send the gold back to you at no cost.

The price we quote is the price we pay. We have no hidden assay or melt fees. We won't chage you anything for weiging in your precious metals. We pay YOU exactly what we've said and won't change our minds once we have your gold.

Our prices are below at the bottom of the website.

Mark is the boss man. He's usually overlooking the yard or in his lorry.
