Metal Recycling in Atlanta

We all know that metal takes entirely too long to break down and it is simply not worth the damage to the environment when it does. In fact, there are some important benefits to consider when it comes to recycling metals:

  • Recycling metal helps conserve our resources.
    • Since we are re-using the scrap metal that would have otherwise been wasted, natural resources do not have to be mined to create new products.
  • Recycling metal reduces emissions.
    • This is because harmful emissions are produced when making metal from ore. These gases trap heat in the atmosphere and can adversely affect Earth’s climate.
  • Recycling metal saves energy.
    • Recycling uses only a small fraction of the energy it would take to create new metal from ore, which adds up significantly over time.

It’s not difficult to see that recycling just makes sense. For example, aluminum is a type of metal that is commonly used in beverage cans and the U.S. is a leading consumer of these products. Inevitably, this means that a lot of aluminum is being thrown in the garbage by people who are unaware of the benefits of recycling. The reality, though, is that aluminum has a nearly infinite recycling potential! That means that a discarded aluminum can could easily be made into a new can, and eventually that can could be made into a new one, so on and so forth. As an added bonus, recycling aluminum cans is cheaper than manufacturing entirely new products!
Recycling your scrap metal simply makes sense— but now that you know that, how do you know which recycling company to choose?
When it comes to metal recycling, the most important thing is finding a company that has a solid commitment to stewardship. A facility that does not commit to providing sound recycling practices and upholding employee safety is one that can’t be trusted to make use out of every salvageable scrap of material they are given. On the other hand, finding a company that is dedicated to their cause and focuses on effective, environmentally-friendly processing services means finding a trustworthy partner who can help manage your growing recycling needs. At Intonu, our services are available to businesses of varied sizes as well as individuals, and we accept loads of any size.
