The scrap metal trade in Penang is managed mostly by the Indian community. In fact, a specific group of Tamil merchants, called the Ayira Vaisyar, dominates this trade. You can find their scrap metal businesses mostly along Victoria Street, although they also operates sheds in various parts of George Town.
On this page I list out the scrap metal traders that I have come across. In addition to scrap metal, these traders also deal in other recyclables such as plastics, glass and paper.
