Recycling Precious Natural Resources

The need to reclaim our natural resources is more important today than ever before. You play a vital role by collecting your scrap metals and utilizing our bin services in St. Albert, Sherwood Park, and Edmonton. We’re happy to provide dumpster rental services provincially and locally, and our products are able to handle any output, small or large.

types of bins

Each type of bin is designed for different purposes to aid different industries. Hoppers are commonly placed inside shops and adjacent to machinery, to collect metal shavings, turnings, and other residuals.  Hoppers are designed to transfer smaller amounts of material to larger bins.


The use of lugger or roll-off bins varies with your needs and the type of material you generate. For example, we may have a large energy customer who needs a bin for scrap pipe which requires a large bin, or they may simply have smaller materials (pile caps, pipe ends, plates, and structural materials shorter than 5 feet) that are more suited to a lugger bin.


Take a look at the tables below to assess your sizing needs. Still have questions? No problem. Contact one of our experienced staff members. Whether you’re collecting copper in Grand Prairie or aluminum scrap in Drayton Valley, we can help!
