Calgary Scrap Metal Prices - Canada

Selling Scrap in Calgary

Calgary is one of the largest cities in Canada and so, with over 1.5 million inhabitants, Calgary has some truly awesome opportunities when it comes to making some cash by selling scrap metal. Additionally, the scrap metal recycling laws in Calgary are some of the strictest in the whole of North America, we're not sure why this is, but we can tell you that it is very important that you adhere to them. This will prevent you from coming into any trouble when you're just trying to make some honest money on the side.

In much the same way as in any other states or cities in Canada, in order to sell scrap metal in Calgary you need to have a valid photo identification. Most people who trade scrap metal bring along a passport or their driving license, however there are many other valid forms of identification too. Furthermore, in Calgary it is a requirement to have the entire transaction of scrap metals recorded on video and the scrap yard dealer has to take photographic evidence of any newly acquired metals too. These laws or restrictions can vary from item to item, for example cards are notoriously difficult to scrap in Calgary. The dealer must keep hold of the license plate number and take down some detailed information on various components of the car too.

Another bizarre law which is regularly enforced in Calgary is that people selling scrap metals can't receive cash for their metal. Dealers must pay customers using checks only, we assume that this makes it easier to track the flow of money from any scrap metal transactions in the state.

Our favourite scrap metal yards in Calgary, which provide the best scrap metal prices, are Calgary Metal Recycling Inc, Recon Metal and Federal Metals. Check out any of these places and you'll come away very pleased that you went there, they accept a huge variety of scrap metal and always maintain a high quality of customer service too.
