Edmonton Scrap Metal Prices - Canada

Selling Scrap in Edmonton

Edmonton has a population approaching 1 million and so, knowing this alone, it is possible to state that there will be a lot of opportunity to trade and sell scrap metal. Edmonton's scrap metal prices are continually fluctuation, this is likely due to its location in Alberta province. A lot of scrap metal is sold along the banks of the Saskatchewan river, which flows through the city. Before we provide you with information on what scrap yards are the best to take your metal to, we should first visit the various rules and regulations which are enforced within the city.

In a similar way to many other Canadian cities, Edmonton has some fairly strict rules in place. This is predominantly due to there being a huge epidemic in metal being stolen for scrap metal, which is fuelled by the high metal prices throughout the city and surrounding state. In order to sell scrap metal in Edmonton, you will need to bring photographic ID, provide a fingerprint sample, have a photograph taken of yourself and also provide photographic evidence for any scrap metal you are intending on selling to a local yard.

Edmonton also require the scrap yards or dealers to take down a substantial amount of information on each sale, as a result there are often limitations to the amount of scrap metal you are able to sell at one time. For example, having less than 1kg of metal is almost certainly not going to be possible to shift to any Edmonton scrap metal yards. Likewise, it can also be difficult to shift a significant quantity of scrap metal there too. Scrap yards can be penalised for accepting scrap metal which is stolen and so they are not obligated to trade with anybody if they suspect that metal has been illegally acquired.

Our favourite scrap yards in Edmonton are Metal & Waste Recycling, Maple Leaf Metals, GEEP Canada, Eskimo Auto & Trucks. At any of these locations, you will always be able to trade the major forms of scrap metal (copper, brass, bronze, lead, aluminium, steel and stainless steel) at great prices.
