Why Recycle Scrap Metal

First, recycling is good for the environment because it saves an enormous amount of energy. Scrap metals like copper, aluminum, steel, iron, or brass can be recycled over and over to make new products, without losing quality or strength. Recycling metals requires less processing than making metals and is both cost-effective and Eco-friendly.

Secondly, Recycling reduces the need for mining and has much less of an environmental impact. Mining companies use excavators and haul trucks to remove the raw material form the ground which in turn destroys the soil and releases toxic compounds into air we breathe and the water we drink.

And of course, recycling creates new jobs. Much more than landfills or incinerators.
