We Buy Edmonton's Scrap Metal
General Recycling Industries Ltd. is proud to offer clients an opportunity to reduce their carbon footprint with our scrap metal purchasing program.
You can quickly determine what type of metal you have in your possession simply by placing a magnet against the object. If the magnet sticks, you have a ferrous metal such as steel or iron. Non-ferrous metals will not stick to a magnet and include copper, aluminum, brass, and stainless steel. These metals are typically more valuable. We accept any quantity of metal, and your payout will be determined by the type of material, its weight, and the current market value.
If you have an old, unused car taking up space at your home, recycle it! Recycling an unwanted car will not only clean up your property; it'll help out the planet too. Just get your vehicle's paperwork in order, bring the car to us, and leave with money in your pocket. It's really that simple!
We also accept batteries for recycling. Our company holds a permit to recycle lead-acid batteries, which ensures that these hazardous materials don't end up in landfills or pollute our drinking water.
