Tin Men scrap metal buyers have moved to a spacious new yard at 63 Foundry Road, Silverdale, making it a whole lot easier for local tradies and householders to unload their unwanted scrap.
The new fully paved, wide open site allows customers to drive right through, so the team can empty their car trailers or trucks for them.
Tin Men owner William Mulholland says manager Shavi Singh has listened to what the public wants in a modern scrap yard.
“It has been difficult to get everything he wanted to happen in the Covid environment, with movement restrictions, staff needing to stay home and not being able to get materials, but everyone agrees Shavi has done a wonderful job,” he says.
“We’ve already had numerous comments from customers and local business owners on how well the transformation has gone.”
The new Tin Men yard is open six days a week, from 7am to 5pm, or 8am to 4pm on Saturdays. There are also two skip bins at the front of the yard where scrap can be donated 24/7 in aid of Harbour Hospice.
Tin Men will also pick up scrap, with regular collections throughout the Hibiscus Coast and Rodney districts, and everything collected is recycled.
“The landfills are filling up fast and it is our duty to reduce what goes there,” Shavi says.
After 13 years in Silverdale, Shavi says the Tin Men team is looking forward to welcoming customers old and new to the new Foundry Road yard, with William Mulholland concentrating on the specialist demolition side of the business throughout New Zealand.
