Toronto, ON Scrap Metal Prices

Selling Scrap in Toronto

Toronto is the capital of the province of Ontario. It has a population of close to 3 million people, which makes it the city with the most inhabitants in Canada. The metropolitan area has close to 7M people so it's quite the city.

It's a very diverse city with people from all kinds of backgrounds. Maybe this explains why music, arts ands movies are so big. There's simply a lot of culture in Toronto!

Toronto's economy is also very diverse. Some of the sectors that are big are echnology, design and financial services (the stock exchange is a big driver here!). But also tourism is very big and innovation sectors like areospace and environmental innovation.

Because the city keeps buzzing and growing, the need for source materials and scrap metal is great. There are good opportunities to sell (or trade) scrap metal or scrap valuable metals here.

It's important to read up on the local laws regarding obtaining and selling scrap metal throughout each city or province in Canada. Many people think that it is as easy as obtaining any metal you can lay your hands on and then you're free to take it to any local scrap yard to sell.

Unfortunately, this is not the case, there is a significant amount of legislation that have been passed in recent years to prevent illegal activity within the scrap metal industry. If you want to sell your scrap metal in Canada, make sure you read all of this legislation.

Make sure to carry at least your ID and be prepared that the scrap yard is required to keep records of their transactions, including your ID. They do this so the police would know how to find someone who brought in stolen metals.
