Looking for an established company to purchase metals in Metro Vancouver? At North Start Recycling, we’ve been the region’s premier choice for purchasing metals, insulated wire, appliances, batteries and more since 1950. With our wealth of experience, we’ve streamlined our process to be as efficient, quick and simple for our valued commercial and residential clients. At our facility, we can assist you in unloading your vehicle, we can provide a bin for larger quantities, and our pricing is based on a per pound amount that we calculate right in front of you. Later on, we can begin the sorting and processing stages. Depending on the type of metal you bring in, it may have to be stripped, chopped or cut to get it down to its basic state. Once we accumulate enough material, the product is either bailed or boxed and shipped to foundries where it can be melted down and reformed.

As per the Vancouver city by-law, we are only allowed to purchase material from customers with a vehicle. No walk-ins allowed. All customers must bring a valid piece of identification with them. North Star Recycling will not accept metals that appear to be stolen. These rules help us to prevent property crime in the Lower Mainland.
