Amix payes by cheque and is open saturday 8-12
Abc pays by cheque too but if you go there on Saturday you get a slip and halfto go back during the week to get paid
West coast in Langley pays cash

Amix is a bit of a gong show right now because of there new shredder project but I still Haul 95% of my stuff there

I pay $200 for scrap but if you are doing it yourself go to ABC in Langley because they guarantee to beat AMIX every day

Since steel prices, and all metal prices actually, change on a near daily basis, call any and all recyclers and see what they are paying to buy steel.

Also will depend on if it is sorted or how they classify it when it comes in. You get more for steel less than 3'x4' due to not needing to process. More money if its just steel, not mixed with plastic or rubber or something.

If your scrap steel is just tossed in the vehicle and the vehicle is whole, take it out and hand it in seperate. I think the local place here was 140 a ton for large steel, 180 a ton or so for the smaller. Putting it on seperatly will gain you an extra 40 bucks a ton in that case.

at the price of fuel sometimes the closest is better even if they pay a bit less
its not worth it for me to drive to amix for 20 bux a ton more if its that much of a diference even
but there all about the same distance for you criss
think amix would be closest for you
