The Many Benefits of Scrap Metal Recycling
There has been a huge shift in the movement toward recycling to ensure we leave a planet worthy for our children and grandchildren. With a national ban on single use plastic bags, huge beach clean-up operations and the trend toward environmentally friendly non-toxic household cleaning materials, recycling in general seems to have taken a strong foothold…but what about scrap metal recycling?
Below are just some of the benefits of scrap metal recycling:
While we are au-fait with recycling paper, plastics, containers, cans, and cardboard, did you know you can re-cycle and re-use metal as well? Reusing steel reduces contamination, conserves sources, reduces landfill waste, and avoids the destruction of natural habitat through ore mining.
Here at Dream Lucky Scrap Metals Recycling in Perth Western Australia we have seen huge gains from precious metal mining but scrap-recycling facilities like ours are actually mines in themselves and provide rich resources that can be reused again and again to protect the atmosphere, at a fraction of the price to mine!
Scrap metal recycling is a continual source of precious metal. Old cars, home appliances, structures, bridges, aircrafts all use scrap metal that has been remelted and reshaped to create brand new products.
Advantages To You
Scrap metal recycling conserves natural deposits by minimising greenhouse gas emissions and uses less energy than making steel from virgin ore. The result of recycling metal is far less dangerous exhaust fumes which in turn reduces air contamination in cities and reduces potential respiratory system health issues due to this lack of poor air quality.
The Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries (ISRI) reports that recycling metal can cut greenhouse gas emissions by 300 million to 500 million tonnes.
Additionally, according to the National Institute of Wellness, scrap metal recycling produces 97% less waste from virgin ore mining and also utilises 40% less water.
Reusing scrap metal creates 36 times more work than sending out the very same amount of metal waste to the incinerator. It also creates 6 times more jobs than sending out the steel to a landfill.
