Nova Scotia Scrap Metal Prices - Canada

Selling Scrap in Nova Scotia

Before heading over to the scrap metal yards situated in Nova Scotia, it's important to remember where you are. Due to the geographical location of Nova Scotia and the lack of trade routes between the rest of Canada, the United States and the rest of the world, scrap metal prices are in high demand. Additionally, because less than one million people live in this Canadian province, there are not too many people to satisfy this high demand.

Scrap metal prices are often the highest in the major cities in this state; Halifax, Yarmouth, Lunenburg, New Glasgow, Amherst, Truro, Wolfville, Antigonish and Digby. Outside of these cities, where Halifax is the only truly large one, you won't be able to find any decent dealers to sell your scrap metal to. Regardless of this, you will be able to trade your metal for a strong valuation within any of these cities and given that they are situated across the province, you should be relatively close to one now.

In terms of the legislation in place restricting the sale of scrap metal, you'll find that Nova Scotia has only a few rules in place. Firstly, you need to be aware of the fact that it is legally required to have a photograph taken of yourself, your identification and your scrap metal ahead of any sale. Unlike in the rest of Canada, this law isn't adhered to very often and so you'll often find that you don't even need to bring your identification with you. We recommend that you keep it on you whenever you plan on selling scrap metal in Nova Scotia as you don't want to travel a potentially significant distance to only find that you can't trade your metal to a local scrap yard.

Within Nova Scotia, our favourite scrap dealers are John Ross & Sons Ltd in Halifax, McNutt's Scrap Metal Ltd in Truro and John Ross & Sons Ltd in Truro. John Ross is a great scrap yard dealer and we would recommend them across the whole of Canada, not only in Nova Scotia.
