Why is Metal Recycling Important?
As the amount of trash in landfills each year steadily increases, it is important that we do all that we can to minimize resource depletion. While people are accustomed to home recycling, and familiar with the ability to recycle paper, plastic, and glass, they fail to realize the ease at which they can recycle metal as well.
The National Institute of health shows that when compared to virgin ore, the amount of energy that can be saved with recycled materials is astronomical. 92% of energy is saved by using recycled aluminum, along with 90% for copper and 56% for steel. It is also reduces mining costs, mining waste, and water usage that would result from virgin ore.
As for the environment, recycling scrap metal ensures that we do our best to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Without putting increased strain on our climate, recycling helps maintain habitats and health for plants, animals, and people.
Recycling metal is economically friendly to you. Not only can you make some extra cash on the spot, you rid yourself of scrap sitting around your home or yard. By doing a bit of research on what metals you plan to sell, you can maximize your pay out, along with helping the planet and your community. Metal recycling creates jobs rather than sitting in a landfill; the recycling industry employs over a million workers just throughout America.

I found it interesting when you said recycling helps sustain ecosystems and health for plants, animals, and humans without placing further demand on our climate. I used to think differently about it not until you explained it briefly and it really got my attention. What you said about recycling was really interesting to me.
