Catalytic Converters Wanted
HOW MUCH ARE SCRAP CATALYTIC CONVERTERS WORTH?
In short, catalytic converter prices range from zero, to many hundreds each. And anywhere in between. A couple may exceed the £1000+ value at certain times. However, those units are very rare.
Refiners test each type of catalytic converter to determine the precious metal content. Based on those findings, they can determine the value of each CAT based on the precious metal prices that day. Cat converter buyers will usually get prices from their own digital catalogues.
Prices could fluctuate throughout the day.
You’ll sometimes be paid more if you deliver your cats. You could receive a higher rate if you have larger quantities to recycle.
WHO CAN SCRAP CATALYTIC CONVERTERS?
Everyone. If you have an old cat & feel like cashing in, we’ll try and get you the best rates. Mechanics and accident repair garages can often acquire damaged catalytic converters which they can sell.

ARE CATALYTIC CONVERTERS HAZARDOUS WASTE?
Yes. Some contain RCF which is a hazardous material.
“LARGER” CATALYTIC CONVERTERS ARE NOT ALWAYS MORE VALUABLE
Larger catalytic converters and DPF’s are not always worth more. Sometimes they are worthless. Also, cats from exotic brands means very little. A small Honda Jazz catalytic converter could be worth more than a Porsche 911 unit.
Who buys Scrap Catalytic Converters?
Primarily refiners, scrap dealers & mobile collectors will purchase Scrap Catalytic Converters.
DELIVERING SCRAP CATALYTIC CONVERTERS
If you have a one cheap catalyst, some buyers won’t collect due to the cost of fuel, time & manpower involved. However buyers may still offer you a price taking these factors into account. Another way would be to deliver your goods to a licenced site. You could be paid a higher rate too.
But if collection is required, we do have members who can help you too.
