Shred-A-Can Scrap Metal Recyclers in Calgary, Alberta

was opened in 1985 as a sister company, but soon became the main focus of the business and was recycling all of Alberta’s Aluminum beverage containers.
As business environments changed due to the Alberta Government’s introduction of the Beverage Container Recycling Regulation, we were forced to refocus our attention back into scrap metal recycling of non-ferrous metals.

Our History in Calgary

Myer Cohen & the late William Cohen opened their first yard in the late 1960’s, ABC Scrap Iron and Metal using the slogan “Your Friendly Neighborhood Junkie!”. After many successful years in Calgary and their brother Bernie Cohen joining them, they opened Alberta Metal Processors. This was a large scrap metal recycling facility with an Aluminum smelter & Auto wreckers.

Jeff Cohen joined his father Myer (now retired) and is now the forth generation of scrap metal dealers serving Calgary. His family has been recycling in Calgary since 1918. Over the years we've made many contacts within the industry. Though we may have downsized by dealing in Non-ferrous metals we have the ability to help recycle all types of scrap metal through our networks.

Our main piece of equipment is for the recycling of Insulated copper wire. The cable wire shredder was designed and built by a European manufacturer, is environmentally friendly and still considered the best system in the market.

We believe that we are “Your Friendly Neighborhood Junkie!” with great customer service, honesty in business, fair pricing and by keeping non renewable resources out of landfills.

We don't just deal in cans, call or bring in your scrap metal and let us prove it!
