Environmental Benefits

Our team takes pride in improving the status of our local landfills. Every year, North America recycles more steel and other metals than plastics combined. Every piece of metal that does not end up in a landfill has a positive effect on the environment, including:

  • Reduction in greenhouse gasses
  • Conservation of energy
  • Conservation of materials
  • Conservation of natural resources
  • Development of green technology for recycling purposes

With over 2,000 landfills currently in operation, we are quickly running out of space for all our debris. To counteract this problem, we’ve made providing competitive recycling rates our number one priority.


Economic Benefits

Not only does the scrap industry provide environmental benefits, it also helps the economy. The effects are evident at the local level, but also on a national level and even globally. Every year, the scrap metal industry generates $90.6 billion in revenue in the United States. Some reasons are:

  • Scrappers selling scrap metal for cash
  • Reduction in production costs of goods and building projects due to recycled materials
  • Supports international trade revenue with exports from the United States
  • Creation of jobs through manufacturing, recycling yards, and exporting
