Ferrous Processing & Trading Poses Benefits of Scrap Metal Recycling

Posted on June 21, 2013 by - Scrap Metal Recycling

Scrap metal recycling services are provided by Ferrous Processing & Trading (FPT) to support commercial, industrial, and individual clients.  Although scrap metal recycling is a growing industry, we understand that many people still pose the question, “Why Recycle?”  The following is our answer to this common query:

Why Recycle?

Benefits to the Environment – Recycling scrap metal helps to decrease land and water pollution.  It reduces the overall amount of illegal dumping which prevents the contamination of our rivers, streams, lakes, and fields.  Scrap metal recycling is unique because companies and individuals can actually be compensated for recycling their scrap metal.  This benefit helps incentivize people to choose recycling over illegal dumping.

Reduce Landfill Waste – Landfills across the country are filling up, and by choosing to recycle your scrap metal waste, you help to greatly reduce the amount of materials in those landfills.  The teams who manage landfills do their best to sort out any renewable resources from the trash, but the truth is there is just too much to process and without specialized equipment, materials can be missed.  At Ferrous Processing & Trading, we have the equipment and resources necessary to properly process and recycle all types of scrap metal waste.

Reduce Energy Consumption – The fact is using recycled metal to create new metal products takes much less energy than manufacturing products from virgin ore.  Metal recycling uses energy, but it is minimal compared to the amount of energy required to mine, heat, process, and manufacture new metal from natural ore.  Metal recycling also helps preserve the land space that would otherwise be destroyed or disrupted by the mining process.

Preserve the Planet – We are stewards of the Earth, and as such we have a responsibility to maintain it for future generations.  By choosing to recycle metal scrap, we are able to preserve natural resources, reduce greenhouse emissions, preserve energy, and take steps towards a cleaner, more sustainable future for our children and the generations to come after that.

With all of these amazing benefits, we encourage you to examine your waste management processes at work and in your home to find ways you can extend your recycling efforts.  FPT will work with clients large and small to help them develop an efficient metal recycling program that is beneficial for both the client and the environment.  We are dedicated to providing the highest level of customer service and process quality.  Our reputation for excellence is one of our most cherished assets, and we encourage you to learn more about how you can be a part of this remarkable process today!
