Who We Are
Westcan Recyclers is a fully integrated ferrous and non-ferrous metals recycler, with a management team that has a combined 65 years of hands-on experience in the metal recycling business.
Ownership is fully involved in the day-to-day operation of the business and handles each customer with the same care and attention that has helped Westcan grow since its inception.
Over the years the management team has observed and toured hundreds of metal recycling operations around the world and has taken the knowledge passed down from some of the largest metal recyclers on the planet and incorporated these tested and proven business practices into Westcan's core business structure.
Metal Recycling is
Our Primary Operation
Westcan receives metal from the general public throughout Alberta and surrounding provinces on a daily basis. In addition to a fleet of trucks (including luggers, roll-offs, flat decks, tractors, flat deck trailers, lowboys, btrains and vans) are on the road every day collecting metals from industrial and commercial business facilities, as well as holding yards and project sites throughout Alberta.
Processing and handling equipment such as shears - mobile and stationary, grapples, magnets, cranes, shredders, balers - portable and stationary, forklifts, skid steers, as well as a highly trained staff ensure the material is processed quickly and efficiently as received.
Westcan's superior processing methods and quality products have enabled relationships to be built with mills and foundries throughout North America, allowing direct shipment to end-users and eliminating the need for middle processors.
