When most people hear the term ‘recyclable materials,’ they think of everyday items like paper, glass, plastic, cans, and clothing. But what about the large, oversized materials that don’t neatly fit into a blue bin, like steel and other scrap metals? The sheer volume of abandoned and forgotten scrap metal taking up acres of land is surprising for the average person. That’s where McSteel Salvage & Clean Up comes in.

McSteel Salvage is a family-owned and operated scrap metal recycling business prioritizing customer satisfaction and environmentally conscious reclamation activities. For the team at McSteel, our job is more than just business; it’s a commitment to maintaining environmental sustainability and offering fair, accurate pricing for our customers.

Keep reading to learn why McSteel is one of the most trustworthy metal recyclers in the prairies and Northwest territories.

The Benefits of Metal Recycling

Acres of land across Alberta, Saskatchewan and the Northwest Territories are covered with small scrap metal mountains. Old, rusty farm equipment and vehicles may still contain oil and gas, which leaks into the soil below.

By weight, steel is one of the most recycled materials in the world because of its ability to be re-melted and recast for a new purpose without sacrificing strength, durability or performance. Steel is the most versatile green resource in the world, and we are proud to do our part in protecting the environment.

Transparent and Fair Services

There is more value than meets the eye with scrap metal, and it’s our job to know exactly what it’s worth. The highly experienced team at McSteel can eyeball your pile and know its value, but we are dedicated to transparent and honest service. All materials are weighed on-site to ensure that you are paid for the exact weight of your items.

McSteel’s services include large site clean-up, bin placement and removal, and metal salvage recycling. Our metal salvage facility buys all types of metal and steel, including vehicles, appliances, farm equipment, copper, batteries and more. Ferrous or non-ferrous, we accept all metals and handle organizing them per category.

Environmental Precautions

McSteel Salvage has massive steelyards located in Wainwright and High Prairie. Underneath most of our metal piles are absorbent mats to prevent ground saturation and act as a protective layer for the soil. They operate much like a filtration system that absorbs water runoff and any hazardous materials lingering on the metal.

When visiting a customer’s site for scrap metal collection, McSteel takes the motto “leave no trace” seriously. Leaving the land better than we found it is our top priority, especially on farmland where soil health is paramount. Discarded farm equipment or vehicles are drained off-site to prevent saturating the ground with pollutants.
