Recycling Scrap Metal

Recycling Scrap Metal – do you have Money lying around?

We are more than bottle depots, we recycle all types of products!

Your scrap metal is worth money AND can be melted down and remanufactured into new products, a process that considerably reduces greenhouse gas emissions and conserves energy and natural resources. You win, and the environment wins!

So, let’s talk details:

What does Regional Recycling buy?

We will buy all of your NON- FERROUS scrap metals. Non-Ferrous metals do not contain steel or iron and include:

  • Stainless steel
  • Lead
  • Zinc
  • Copper
  • Brass
  • Aluminum

I’m no expert, how can I tell if it is NON-FERROUS?

Use the magnet test to determine whether your scrap metal is worth any money. Grab a magnet and see if it sticks to (or is drawn to) the metal object. If it does stick, or there is a hint of any magnetic attraction, there is steel content in the item and it may not be worth as much.

What if I don’t have a magnet? How do I tell?

If you are not sure what type of metals your objects are, you are welcome to bring them to any of our depots and we will be able to tell you if it is a metal that we purchase. Even if it has no cash value we will still accept all of your scrap metals for recycling!

Please note that not all of our Regional Recycling Depots pay for scrap metal at this time – Only our Abbotsford, Burnaby, Cloverdale and Richmond locations currently purchase scrap metals.

How much does Regional Recycling Pay?

Due to the fact that the value of various metals is highly volatile and determined based on a number of factors including foreign exchange we are unable to say what value a particular item has prior to your bringing it into one of our depots.

If you have a large amount of scrap metal that you would like to recycle – worth money or not – please contact us at 1-855-701-7171

I don’t have a vehicle. How do I get my scrap metal to you?

In the greater Vancouver area we are excited to have partnered with Mission Possible, a local not-for-profit organization that has been helping people challenged by homelessness and poverty by renewing a sense of dignity and purpose through meaningful work. For a small fee they will pick up your old electronics, scrap metal, appliances and other recyclable from your home. Please feel free to connect with them directly to arrange pick up of your items. If you would like to donate your items to their cause.

If you are not in an area that Mission Possible services, or would prefer another option, you can search for scrap metal pick up services online.Recycling Scrap Metal mission-possible-2

Recycling Scrap Metal – COMMERCIAL PICKUP

If you have more than 2 pallets worth of recycling, you may qualify for a free commercial pickup from Regional Recycling. Call us at 1-855-701-7171 to learn more about Regional Recycling’s Commercial Pickup Services.

Do all of your locations pay for scrap metal?

Our Abbotsford, Burnaby, Cloverdale and Richmond currently purchase scrap metals. The remainder of our locations will all accept all types of scrap metals for recycling, but do not purchase/pay for scrap metal.

How do I get paid?

When you bring your items in, one of our team members will work with you to determine the value of your items. Once we process your recycling, we will provide you with a payment voucher that can be redeemed at the automated payment kiosks provided in each location. (Our RR team members do not handle cash.)

Is it really that easy?

We’d like to think so, yes!

At Regional Recycling we are working to provide you with more – by paying you more money for your returns, providing you with more service when you are at our depots and by taking more types of recycling than any other depot. We’d love to help you take care of your recycling needs – make Regional Recycling YOUR One Stop Recycling Shop! We look forward to seeing you at one of our depots soon!
