Why You Should Start Recycling This Year 

A new year means new opportunities to set and meet goals. One of your goals for 2021 might have something to do with your footprint and ways that you can reduce it, whether you’re representing a business owner or are merely trying to be a more responsible individual. At Belson Steel Center Scrap Inc., we think that something you should focus on this year is recycling. Here’s an overview of why you should start recycling this year and how Belson Steel Center Scrap Inc. can help–

Recycling Diverts Waste

When materials are recycled, they’re diverted from the landfill. This is important because in America, we’re running out of landfill space. Landfills are also bad for our health and our environment, contributing to toxic runoff and the emission of greenhouse gases, such as methane. We should all do our part to keep materials out of the landfill. 

Recycling Conserves Energy and Resources

Recycling is also beneficial because not only does it keep materials out of the landfill, but it helps to conserve energy and resources. For example, by recycling scrap metal, the earth is protected against new metal mining and energy in the extraction and manufacturing processes are conserved. Recycling also saves water too. 

Recycling Helps to Create Jobs

Recycling and scrap metal recycling help to create good-paying jobs for workers in Illinois and throughout the nation. The Student Conservation Association reports that recycling and reuse activities accounted for over 750,000 jobs in a single year. By supporting recycling, you could support your local economy. 

Recycling Can Earn You Money

When you recycle certain materials, such as scrap metal, you can get paid to do so. At Belson Steel Center Scrap Inc., we pay top dollar for scrap metal based on current market prices. We always pay cash to handle metal weighing and separation for you. Recycling scrap metal rather than taking it to the landfill is an easy way to earn a little extra cash. 

Recycling Is Easy

Finally, you should start recycling this year not only because it’s good for the earth, the economy, and your pocketbook but because it’s easy and there’s no reason not to do it. From recycling bins throughout the state that can take most materials to transportation and on-site container services for scrap metal offered by Belson Steel Center Scrap Inc., not recycling just doesn’t make sense.
