Posner Metals Ltd logo

Posner Metals Ltd.


610 Beach Road

We were recyclers long before the idea of recycling began. In some ways, we can consider ourselves to be ‘pioneers’ in the area of environmentalism. Forty years or so ago, when we entered this business, the environment was not a major social concern and the idea of ‘recycling’ was virtually unheard of. We got into the business because it seemed practical and profitable to collect and use scrap metal.

Today, environmental concerns are among the major forces that drive our business. Landfill sites cannot accommodate the massive quantities of metal being consumed by our society. In addition, the savings in energy costs and environmental impact by reducing mining area are a substantial benefit of recycling metal.

As it was 40 years ago, our solution is to gather metals and deliver it to organizations that can reuse it. Naturally, our approach to metal recycling operations has evolved to meet the highest environmental standards in all aspects of our operations. For four generations, from Hans Posner to the current management to the next generation, we have continued as a family-run business.
