Turning Scrap and Junk into Recycled Value
Why buy new? This is the question to ask yourself, specifically when it comes to auto parts and engines. Did you know that there are many local junk car buyers that will pay you top dollar for your auto scrap? Besides being paid for your auto junk, there are many other benefits to recycling.
Recycling scrap metal reduces the amount of harmful materials in our waste stream and reduces greenhouse gas emissions.
In fact, according to the EPA the benefits of recycling include:
-Reduces the amount of waste sent to landfills and incinerators
-Conserves natural resources such as timber, water and minerals
-Increases economic security by tapping a domestic source of materials
-Prevents pollution by reducing the need to collect new raw materials
-Supports American manufacturing and conserves valuable resources
-Helps create jobs in the recycling and manufacturing industries in the United States
Did you know that about 45% of the world’s steel production comes from recycled metal, along with about one third of the world’s aluminum and over 40% of the world’s copper. In 2014, approximately 135 million metric tons of scrap metal was recycled in the United States alone!
