British Columbia Scrap Metal Prices - Canada

Selling Scrap in British Columbia

British Columbia is one of the most beautiful states in Canada, it is situated on the south western corner of the country and is covered in scrap metal recycling facilities. Whenever you find a location with a number of sizeable scrap yards, you can instantly distinguish it as a place where you can make good money from selling scrap metal.

One of the best cities within British Columbia for selling scrap metal is Vancouver, here you will find a number of large dealers who are always providing great prices for a range of metals; copper, lead, steel and aluminium. There are millions of people who live in British Columbia, but only a really small fragment of these people are actually involved in the dealing of scrap metal. This is why there is such a great opportunity to make some serious money in this venture.

The main scrap metal yards in British Columbia, who interestingly enough also provide the best prices in this area too, are West Coast Metal Recycling (Langley City), ABC Recycling Surrey (Surrey) and ABC Recycling Terrace (Thornhill). You will find that there are many other smaller dealers in BC, however if you go to any of these you'll be treated really well and the dealer won't try to rip you off for your scrap metal. The other thing to remember when taking your scrap metal to be sold in British Columbia is that the laws do vary from state to state, here you need to make sure you bring along some valid identification (preferably a passport or driving license) and also have proof that you are authorised to sell your scrap metal.
