Nurse Scrap Metal has been a long-standing business in the Peterborough area since 1954 and now has two locations to serve you better! With locations in Peterborough as well as Douro, our service area has greatly expanded! Nurse Scrap Metal employs friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable staff that can deal with all jobs, large or small. We take great pride in being environmentally friendly and recycling everything we can. Our Peterborough location is equipped with a 60ft certified weigh scale, while our Douro location is equipped with a 90ft certified scale and 30 Acres of land, making it more suitable for our industrial and commercial customers – more spacious and easier to maneuver large trucks and equipment!

When you think adaptability, response times,
agility and turnaround regardless of the
project size or scope - think NSM.
