• Industry Leader Finds Savings

    When a client realized her old metal recycler was inconsistent in reporting the weights on trucks and metals, she switched to urbanmine and found savings with our transparent practices.

Industrial Container Service

Urbanmine offers prompt container service to accommodate industrial organizations with all scrap metal recycling:

  • We deliver a container that is just the right size for your business directly to your facility and place it where you need it
  • Once it is full, notify us
  • We promptly pick up the container and replace it with an empty one
  • We weigh your material and process your payment

Contractors

Contractors can find scrap metal disposal to be an aggravating by-product on demolition sites. Instead of paying to transport your metal scrap, we will bring a container directly to your job site.

Computerized Tracking

Our custom-designed computer software tracks every stage of the scrap metal process. It starts by creating a specific tracking number for each specific pickup, triggered by the call to dispatch a truck. From that moment on, the bill of lading, the pickup slip, the scale ticket, the payment invoice and the cheque issued to you are all logged in the system under the same tracking number. This creates a fully transparent way for you to see how your scrap is being weighed, valued and paid quickly. That step-by-step tracking record can be made available to you at any point in the process.

It’s just one of the ways urbanmine is redefining the scrap metal business, upholding our promise to be honest and transparent.
