SCRAP METAL DROP-OFF FOR THE GENERAL PUBLIC

Looking to Recycle Your Scrap Metal?

Richmond Steel Recycling accepts scrap metal drop-offs from the general public. There is no load too small or too large; we accept scrap metal loads of all sizes.

Why We Recycle Scrap Metals

Through recycling scrap metal, we can actively help reduce greenhouse gas emissions, use less energy, and conserve natural resources. We reduce the amount of waste that otherwise would end up in landfills, especially electronic waste that could potentially create serious pollution risks due to its toxicity.

Certain scrap metals are scarce in the natural world, leading us to rely on resource mining in order to acquire more. Ore mining, in particular, can devastate natural habitats and create detrimental pollution. Recycling scrap metals can reduce mining and its effects, including the energy consumption required to mine.

Greenhouse gasses are one of our environment’s biggest threats, contributing to climate change. In recycling metal instead of mining for it and reducing the amount of energy required in mining, we can reduce greenhouse gas emissions. According to the Government of Canada, over 81% of emissions come from energy, and we are actively trying to reduce this.

In selling your scrap metal to us for cash, you are engaging in an environmentally-friendly practice while helping to keep the city green.
