House of Metals has been the market leader since 1953. We have earned and maintained an excellent reputation with customers by providing superior products, quality and service.
House of Metals is proud to be a partner in the global enterprise of aluminum recycling, which preserves energy and natural resources. The downside of the production of primary aluminum is that the extraction of alumina from the ore bauxite depletes the fixed amount of metal that exists on earth, and can lead to environmental problems with mining (acid mine drainage, etc.). It also uses a tremendous amount of electricity. In addition, since a large amount of carbon is used in the process, the refining of aluminum generates large amounts of greenhouse gas emissions.
Recycling aluminum, on the other hand, is 92% more energy efficient than making new aluminum, and reduces greenhouse gas emissions by 95%. In fact, recycling just 2,000 pounds of aluminum conserves up to 16,000 pounds of bauxite ore and 14-megawatt hours of electricity (not including what is needed for shipping the bauxite from abroad). On average, 76 million megawatt hours of electricity can be saved per year by recycling aluminum! The global demand for aluminum continues to rise, and in the U.S. and Canada alone, 5 million tons of aluminum are recycled each year (nearly 40% of North American supply), which saves more than 90 percent of the energy that would otherwise be used in the production of primary aluminum. And as House of Metals Co. Ltd continues to demonstrate with integrity and sound business practices, aluminum is 100% recyclable.
House of Metals has established mutually beneficial long-term relationships with the manufacturers who supply the scrap, and with its customers who purchase the recycled metal products. The company’s stellar performance has caused it to stand out from the competition during all three generations at its helm.
Our Mission & Vision

Our vision enables us to deliver outstanding market knowledge coupled with exemplary productivity. At the same time, we embody the highest standards of integrity and environmental responsibility.
As Toronto’s premier scrap metal broker/processor, we specialize in aluminum, stainless steel and copper.
We are effectively and efficiently testing for quality, bailing, bricketting, and shearing the scrap to exceed industry standards and provide our clients with the reliable product they’ve come to depend on. Our latest innovation, Eccomelt, utilizes a process that recycles aluminum wheels to produce a direct substitute for A356.2. Due to our large volumes and our sterling relationships with the mills, we continually provide our customers with the best dollar value for their scrap.
House of Metals, an ISO 9001 certified company has developed and implemented a company-wide, auditable quality system which allows customers to receive superior service and product quality.
House of Metals staff are metal experts of the highest order and we are assisted by sophisticated lab equipment. Our ARL3460 Advantage Optical Emission Spectometer provides a complete chemical analysis of an alloy in seconds and plays a critical role in ensuring correct product identification.
House of Metals is the exclusive distributor for Rio Tinto’s primary foundry ingot which includes A356.2, A356.2SR, A713.1, and A7122 alloys.
