We Lead the Way in Scrap Metal Recycling

Since 1950, North Star Metal Recycling has led the way in scrap metal recycling in North Vancouver. We are members of the Recycling Council of British Columbia (RCBC) and the Canadian Association of Recycling Industries (CARI). These affiliations help bolster our reputation as a name you can trust for scrap metal services. Our business and industry are essential to the local economy and environment. We are thrilled to do our small part. If your property is overflowing with junk, then we can help.

The Benefits Of Scrap Metal Recycling


Any item with metal components is a candidate for scrap metal recycling. At North Star Metal Recycling, we excel at finding value in things that would ordinarily go to the landfill. If you own a commercial or industrial property, there is a strong chance some of your unused items can be recycled. And that’s where we come in. Whether from renovation projects, car repairs, or something else, you should never toss metal objects in with the trash. What would end up in a landfill can be reprocessed into valuable metal for future products. And there are considerable benefits for your business, including:

  • It Reduces Your Carbon Footprint: Environmentally-conscious businesses understand the value of reducing their carbon footprint. You can significantly reduce that footprint and create a roadmap for a more sustainable future by recycling scrap metal.

What North Star Metal Recycling Can Process

Scrap metal certainly includes pure metal items, such as piping. But there is more to the equation. At North Star Metal Recycling, we can accept anything with a metal component. If you have excess items at your construction site or facility, we can recycle them. We can take everything with a metal component, including steel beams, tools, metal siding, pipes, gutters, guardrails, water heaters, boilers, and much more. In addition, we recycle wire recycling, copper recycling, and battery recycling. We can also reprocess steel, brass, aluminum, and stainless steel.

How Do You Process and Recycle Scrap Metal?

Before we sell recycled items to manufacturers, we must recycle your scrap metal items through a complex process. During this process, our professionals collect all the metal items and process them by grade. Next, we shred them with industrial-strength machinery. Once we have shredded the materials to more manageable sizes, we use high-temperature furnaces to melt the materials into blocks or sheets. Once we perform these steps, we can pass the recycled materials along to a wide range of manufacturers for further processing and use.
