Why Recycle?

At United Recycling , we invite you to contribute to the global effort to create a sustainable relationship between humans and our shared planet. Since the earth’s resources are finite, it only makes sense to reuse materials whenever possible. Metals and cardboard require intensive production processes so why not play a part in facilitating their return to manufacturers, and contribute to the efficient lifecycle of the materials we all use.

There are several valid reasons to recycle. Besides the monetary reimbursement incentive available to those who recycle metals, there are many benefits we can share communally when we do our part to recycle reusable materials.

The Value of Metal

Metal is a finite resource on our planet and obtaining it from the earth is costly for miners, consumers, and the environment. Its ill effects on our planet’s health are many; besides air and water pollution, mining for metal requires a lot of work from professional mining companies. Once mined, metal still needs to be processed for purification purposes which wastes water and pollutes even more.

So to minimize unnecessary labor, and to do your part in creating a more sustainable future, recycle your metal materials at United Recycling and we’ll all be better off!

Call today with any questions about recycling specific materials and we’ll tell you how to proceed!

 

Fun Fact!  Recycling 1 ton of paper can save 17 trees, 7,000 gallons of water, 2 barrels of oil, and 4,000 kilowatts of electricity. The energy that you save can power 1 home for 5 months.
