Why Recycle Scrap Metal?


Did you know that by recycling a single aluminum can, you can save enough energy to power a 14-watt CFL lightbulb for 20 hours, a computer for three hours, or a television set for two hours?

Most people think of paper and plastics when it comes to recycling, but recycling scrap metal can have an enormous positive impact on the environment. Consider the financial and environmental costs of mining new ore. Mining is not only an expensive and dangerous process that involves costly machinery and dangerous human labour; it emits greenhouse gases and destroys natural habitats.

Unlike wood, metal is a non-renewable resource: you can’t plant a seed and regrow a metal supply after taking some! Since it is so difficult and expensive to obtain, reusing metal is definitely a smart choice.

More Reasons to Recycle Metal

  • Reduce the size of landfills
  • Reduce toxic chemical leaching and pollution due to metal in landfills
  • Reduce greenhouse gas emissions, thus helping to prevent climate change
  • Steel and copper do not degrade through recycling; they can be recycled over and over again to make consumer goods like electronics, sports equipment, and even planes
  • Glass (from your bottles and jars) also do not degrade and can be recycled indefinitely


Metal products are all around us, and many of them are already made with recycled materials; it’s just impossible for us to notice. Recycle your scrap metal today to ensure our metal supply tomorrow. With so many different types of metals (steel, iron, aluminum, etc.), the potential to reuse metal materials is vast. Recycling scrap metal is what makes popular consumer products like cars and tablets, appliances and food packaging, accessible and affordable for generations to come.
