Most people take their old, metal junk and used appliances to the dump and aren't even aware that most of this can be recycled as scrap metal.
And if they do know, they’re often unsure how to go about it. But scrap metal pick up can make recycling their first choice.
Scrap Metal Pick Up Helps You and Our Planet
Many people find that getting rid of junk metal items can be difficult. This is especially true if those items are too large to place inside their curbside trash bins. If the item is something like a broken-down appliance, then selling it is not an option.
And figuring out how to get some kind of scrap metal pick up done may be a mystery for them.
Some people would like to recycle these types of junk materials, but it can be a challenge if they don't know how to go about it or where to take them. And recycling scrap metal yourself can often be much more difficult and even a bit more dangerous task than recycling most other common household trash.
As a nation, we do try to recycle.
For example, almost everyone tries to recycle aluminum cans. But many people don't realize that all the junk metal items they need to get rid of can be recycled. This is unfortunate, and most of our municipal disposal services aren't always much help in educating their customers about metal recycling.
In fact, information that explains and promotes scrap metal pick up and recycling is not easy to come by, unlike more familiar items such as paper, glass and aluminum cans.
The statistics support this, too.
An Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries (ISRI) survey found that more than 100 million American adults are note sure what can and cannot be recycled, nor even where or how to get information about recycling.
That number represents almost half of the entire adult population in America!
But the fact is that most of the junk we produce is actually reusable. And this is especially true when it comes to our scrap metal junk items, which is why scrap metal pick up and recycling is often the best disposal solution for them.
A Sustainable Solution: Scrap Metal Pick Up and Recycling
Metals are almost infinitely recyclable.
In fact, most metals can be recycled repeatedly without altering their properties and steel is the single most recycled material on the planet.
When it comes to recycling metals, after steel, aluminum is the next most recycled metal, then copper, silver, brass, and gold.
The United States recycles enough steel to make cars from all recycled material, enough waste aluminum to make soda cans, and a wide variety of metal building construction materials.
But this is only possible when enough people contribute to the scrap metal recycling stream.
When this doesn't happen regularly and consistently, then much of this potential recycled metal material ends up in junk yards and landfills. This unfortunate since scrap metal is such a great candidate for recycling.
Much of this failure to recycle is due to a lack of public awareness and the need for more public education from the government and the scrap metal industry.
Here's a graphic overview of scrap metal recycling in the United States:
