At Second Street Iron and Metal Co in Everett, Massachusetts we provide metal scraping services to both businesses and individuals alike. It is a great symbiotic relationship. Our clients get rid of unwanted metals, both ferrous and non-ferrous metals alike. Our clients then receive money in return for their materials. We then receive recycled metals that can be repurposed.
We all know that recycling is good for the environment. When unwanted materials are repurposed instead of being discarded to take up place in a dump or landfill, it’s a win-win situation for the client, our company, and the earth.
Let’s take a look at the environmental benefits of recycling your scrap metal. According to research conducted by the E.P.A recycling scrap metals instead of producing brand new iron ore can yield:
