Is Your Neighborhood Recycling Scrap Metal? 

Recycling scrap metal (and other materials) is an important part of protecting the environment and supporting the local economy. By keeping materials in circulation, you’re conserving resources and reducing the need for new metal mining. At Belson Steel, we are passionate about scrap metal recycling and want to help your neighborhood take action to implement a neighborhood recycling program. Here’s what you should know about the types of scrap metal that can be recycled and the advantages of a neighborhood recycling program—

What Types of Scrap Metal Can Be Recycled?

One of the incredible things about recycling metal as opposed to other materials, such as plastics, is that most metals can be recycled indefinitely without losing strength or quality. Aluminum, for example, can be recycled time and time again simply by melting it down and reforming it. This is also true for steel and many other metal types. Types of scrap metal that can be recycled include steel, stainless steel, iron, cast iron, tungsten, lead, copper, tin, aluminum, aluminum cans, brass, bronze, etc. 

Metal can also be recovered from household objects, appliances, vehicles, etc. to be recycled. At Belson Steel, we buy a variety of metal-containing items, including vehicles, machinery, computers, appliances, electronics, and more. 

The Advantages of a Neighborhood Recycling Program

A neighborhood recycling program has many advantages. Some of these include:

  • You can get paid to recycle scrap metal. At Belson Steel, we pay top dollar for recycled scrap.
  • You’ll be supporting local workers and your local economy, which benefits everyone.
  • A recycling program may incentivize you to finally get around to cleaning out the garage or decluttering forgotten corners of your home.
  • Recycling scrap metal has energy-saving and environmental benefits, which serve everyone long-term. 
  • A neighborhood recycling program can be the first step in shifting the mindset towards one that prioritizes sustainability. 
  • A neighborhood recycling program may allow for an easy way to transport scrap in bulk, rather than requiring individual trips to a recycling center.
