Metal Recycling


Metals are one of the easiest materials to recycle and can be processed at many recycling centers and scrap metal facilities. Metals hold its value fairly well, and most types of metal can be recycled again and again with no change in their basic properties.  By recycling metals whenever possible, you can help protect the environment, reduce energy consumption, and keep metal out of our landfills to free up space for other types of trash that can't be recycled.
