Kitchener Scrap Metal Prices

Selling Scrap in Kitchener

As you are aware, Kitchener is based in southern Ontario, it has many areas which are associated with having good scrap metal yards (Waterloo, Breslau and Preston). The laws which control the trade of scrap metal in Kitchener are not complicated, however there are a number of things which you should certainly be aware of before planning to sell your metal.

Scrap yards, for example, will have retain your documentation for up to two years following any transaction. You will notice that they request some photo ID when you first apply to sell to them, they will also take photographs of anything you request a sale of too. Most people bring along a passport or driving license to the scrap yard and this often is suffice for the vast majority of trades. As with all cities in Canada, if you are intending on scrapping a car at the recycling centre, the dealer will have to report this to the national motor vehicle organisation. Once this has been done, you can proceed with your sale.

Kitchener, as with many cities based in Ontario, have strong scrap metal prices throughout most of the year. There is a high demand for aluminium and copper in the province and so this is a great place to make some serious money in the scrapping business. Furthermore, you'll find that the customer service at these scrap yards is also fantastic too. We found that dealers in all of the city's main metropolitan areas were very friendly, helpful and ultimately provided a great service for trading scrap metal. Kitchener's scrap metal prices are good right now and so we'd recommend gathering up all of your metal as soon as possible to trade it at these local recycling centres. Our list of the top yards are Triple M Metal LP Kitchener, Joseph & Company Inc. and Logel's Auto Parts.
