Serving Metro Vancouver Since 1950
North Star Metal Salvage began operations at its Powell street location in 1950. Originally, the company started out by buying old marine scrap. Over the years, North Star Metal Salvage grew and evolved into a full service, non-ferrous metal recycling facility.
In January of 2001, under the direction of Harold Folk and Phil Watson, the company was renamed North Star Metal Recycling to bring attention to the benefits of the metal recycling process. Since this time, North Star has been steadily growing due in part to our loyal customer base. We are proud Members of the RCBC (Recycling Council of British Columbia and CARI (Canadian Association of Recycling Industries).
Over the previous two decades the Powell St. facility has seen many changes; most notably when the City of Vancouver completed the Powell St. upgrade. Now North Star Recycling is owned by Adam Folk. Our operations have been expanded across the Lower Mainland and the addition of a trucking fleet has allowed us provide companies with many different recycling solutions.
