Can I Recycle ?
When most people hear the word "recycle" they think of paper goods, plastic, and aluminum cans.
However, there is another industry in the recycling world called Scrap Metal Recycling, which processes more than 125 Million Tons of recycling each year!
Scrap Metal Recycling (e.g. GotScrap?) is the most popular form of recycling in the United States. Steel and aluminum can be infinitely recycled. Scrap metal consists of ferrous metals or nonferrous metals. Large items such as cars, dishwashers, washing machines, stoves, and refrigerators are generally created from metal and therefore the best items to recycle. When you recycle Scrap Metal, you re-use the material and save on natural resources and reduce greenhouse gases.
In addition to providing benefits for the environment, however, Scrap Metal Recycling is also a far more cost effective solution to creating metals than actually producing new metals. As a result, recycling metals is one of the biggest industries in the world today.
