We specialize in the purchasing, grading, handling and processing of all ferrous and non-ferrous scrap metals for our clients – manufacturers, demolition contractors, smaller recycling yards, traders and public individuals.

Our metal is processed, sorted and packaged at our facilities according to domestic and international mill specifications. We also recycle and process old corrugated cardboard (OCC), making high-grade packages ready for pulping plants around the world.

John Ross & Sons was one of the first companies in Canada to acquire its AQSIQ license from the government of China and is proud to be an active member of the Canadian Association of Recycling Industries (CARI) and the Eastern Recyclers Association.

John Ross & Sons has its own full service logistics and documentation department, creating a smoother experience for its customers. Our operations utilize the most up to date equipment and technology available, and meet the highest standards in quality control, safety management and environmental practices.
