As an enviromentally conscious (that is to say, an unwashed hippy) I’ve been getting more and more bothered by how much metal we chuck in the dumpster at work. I called the Recycling Depot asking if they took scrap metal, but as soon as I mentioned “car parts”, the guy said they couldn’t.
I remember at back at our old location, some older guy came buy asking if he could buy our scrap metal (and our old batteries and some other stuff) but my boss wasn’t into it. Also, I was down in Vancouver recently, and all over the news was the rash of vandalism and theft as bums were stealing anything they could get their hands on that was made of metal to sell to scrap dealers.
So, I’m wondering if anyone knows of a person or business in Prince Rupert that would take our scrap metal (heck, I don’t even want money for it, I would just rather see it reused than landing in the dump). We’re talking things like brake rotos, drums, shock absorbers, springs, axles, bumpers, engines, transmissions, rims… lots of iron, steel and aluminum.
