Benefits of Recycling

There are numerous environmental benefits of recycling scrap metals including natural resource conservation, reduced greenhouse gas emissions, and cleaner air and water.  The amount of energy saved in 2009 by using recycled materials versus virgin ore was 92% for aluminum, 90% for copper, and 56% for steel.  Additionally, recycling one ton of aluminum conserves 8 tons of bauxite ore and 14 megawatt hours of electricity.  Recycling one ton of steel conserves 2500 pounds of iron ore, 1400 pounds of iron coal and 120 pounds of limestone. 

In addition to the overwhelming environmental benefits, recycling has a direct and immediate benefit for you...Money.  By recycling your scrap metals you are helping preserve the environment and supporting the national and global economy while improving your bottom line.
