You may be surprised by what you learn

The United States recycles 150 million metric tons of scrap materials annually, according to the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries. Popular items include iron, steel, aluminum, copper, stainless steel, lead, zinc, brass, bronze, magnesium, and tin. We purchase and process all ferrous and non-ferrous scrap metals.

We're strong believers in recycling and hope you are, too. Here is some information to help you learn why recycling is so good for the environment. If you have any questions about our recycling services, please contact us today.

Save energy

Recycling scrap metal reduces greenhouse-gas emissions and uses less energy than making metal from virgin ore.

 

The amount of energy saved using various recycled metals compared to virgin ore is up to:

• 92% for aluminum

• 90% for copper

• 56% for steel

Conserve natural resources

Metal recycling also conserves natural resources. Recycling one ton of steel conserves 2,500 pounds of iron ore, 1,400 pounds of coal, and 120 pounds of limestone.

 

Recycling a ton of aluminum conserves up to 8 tons of bauxite ore and 14 megawatt hours of electricity.
