Cariboo Metal Recycling

Cariboo Metal Recycling is a full-service scrap metal recycling facility located in Quesnel, BC. They are a drop-off for the Encorp Return-It program and can recycle a wide variety of computer and electronics products. They offer Scrap Metal Pick-Up Service.

While you’re more than welcome to take your scrap metal to their recycling center, that’s not always convenient or even possible. They are able to pick up scrap at your site either through their bin service or with the equipment required to meet your needs.

Cariboo Metal Recycling offers:
