Quebec City Scrap Metal Prices

Selling Scrap in Quebec City

Quebec City's population has surged over the last twenty years and consequently, so has its demand for scrap metal. There are many different rules in place that look after scrap metal dealings throughout the city, rule number one is to know these various laws to make sure that you don't get into any trouble while selling scrap. Quebec City's laws are, fortunately, very straightforward and while this isn't necessarily the case throughout the various provinces or cities in Canada, it is in Quebec and Quebec City. Unfortunately, the theft of metal from businesses has affected much of Canada and stricter laws had to be implemented to control this.

We have reviewed all of Quebec City's legislature which governs the sale of scrap metal and have provided a detailed summary of it below. Additionally, this page also contains all of the scrap metal prices for the various metals in the city too, please let us know if you have any queries with any of this and we will be happy to help. The main laws in place involve providing scrap yards and scrap dealers with valid identification before trying to sell anything to them. Scrap metal needs to be accounted for and so a passport or driving license is generally needed to confirm a sale. In addition to this, you will often need to provide an account for how you obtained the metal in question and why you are planning on selling it. This is perhaps slightly easier if you are a business that deals directly with waste metal, however if you are an individual, this bit can be quite tricky and monotonous at times.

Apart from all of these regulations, the next most important thing to know when trying to sell scrap metal in Quebec City is where the best dealers are situated. In all of our time selling metal in the city, we found that the best were Thibaudeau Metal (Quebec City), Kenny U-Pull (Saint-Augustin-de-Desmaures) and AIM Recyclage Vanier (Quebec City). The prices for copper, aluminium, stainless steel and bronze were high here and other metals were available to be sold as well. They are all highly recommended by us.
