About Yard

The history of ABC Recycling is intertwined with the legacy of the Yochlowitz family. Joseph Yochlowitz and his wife Sarah immigrated to Canada from Poland at the turn of the last century, eventually settling in Vancouver. In 1912, Joseph began a scrap peddling business, working the streets of the young city with horse and wagon. He was soon joined by his son, Daniel. In 1935, Daniel opened his own scrap metal business and, 14 years later, bought a building and established ABC Salvage and Metal Company.
Over the years, subsequent generations of family members have joined the business, and leadership has been handed from Daniel to his son Harold, and from Harold to his eldest son, David. The company has continued to flourish so that today, third and fourth-generation family members are actively involved in growing ABC Recycling for future generations.


ABC Recycling is a Canadian family enterprise with a heritage of serving and supporting communities through the recovery, processing and recycling of scrap metal since 1912.


We will be the leader of the scrap metal recycling industry in Western Canada, providing unparalleled service to our customers, operating with integrity, and supporting our communities.

We are proud to support – through sponsorships, financial contributions, and staff resources – a variety of not-for-profit organizations in the arts, education, health care and community support services.
Become a Donor of Hope
Donate your scrap metal in support of BC Women's Newborn ICU, in exchange for a tax receipt!
ABC Recycling's Donor of Hope program engages industry to donate their scrap metal in support of BC Women's Hospital Newborn ICU, providing an essential, continuous source of funding to care for the most critically ill babies across the province.
When a BC baby is born too soon, too small or too sick to survive without help, the doctors and nurses of BC Women's Hospital Newborn ICU are there to save lives. But this critical work is only possible with access to the latest technologies and up-to-date equipment.
Our Donor of Hope program directly supports BC Women's Hospital's Hope Starts Here campaign and its goal to raise $17 million towards much-needed equipment upgrades. With $12 million raised so far (2014), we are optimistic that - with your help - this goal can be reached.
