Metal

It’s more precious than you might think.

Pile of metallic waste
Fast Facts

Make the most of your metal

Almost every kind of metal can be recycled endlessly, which means virtually endless opportunities for your business. But in a variety of industries, this valuable commodity is being tossed right in the trash. Consider this: throwing away a single aluminum can wastes the energy equivalent to filling that same can with gas. Or this: recycling that can can actually bring money back into your business.

  • Recycling just one aluminum can save enough energy to power a TV for approximately 3 years
  • Nearly 75% of all aluminum ever produced is still in use today
  • Americans have earned more than $25 billion since 1975 simply by recycling aluminum cans
