Calgary’s metal recycling industry has long been at the forefront of recycling and other green initiatives in the province. As an enviro business and in partnership with the Recycling Council of Alberta (RCA), Federal Metals Inc. is committed to creating a pathway towards a zero waste Alberta. At our scrap yard, our Calgary metal recyclers work tirelessly to collect and repurpose scrap steel and other metals for sale, keeping it out of the landfills.

We’re excited to tell you a bit more about the great organization that is the RCA and what role we play in it, as well as more about what it is that Federal Metals Inc. does.

Recycling Council of Alberta: Vision and Goals
The RCA is a non-profit, charitable organization committed to promoting resource conservation and waste reduction in the province through scrap metal recycling. The stated vision of the RCA is: “Create a pathway to a zero waste Alberta.” The RCA strives to achieve these goals and vision with the help of partners in industry, government, and environmental stewardship. It often calls on the government to improve waste management and recycling efforts.

Our membership gives us access to the council’s annual waste reduction conference as well as the opportunity to participate in project teams that specialize in municipal and community outreach. The RCA and its member businesses also work with other agencies and organizations to support waste reduction mandate projects.
