Environmental Benefits of Recycling

In addition to generating significant economic benefits, the recycling industry is a pivotal player in environmental protection, resource conservation, and sustainability. U.S. recyclers transformed 138 million mt of material from outdated or obsolete products into valuable manufacturing inputs in 2018. Those scrap commodities reduce the need to mine for ore, cut down trees for paper, extract fossil fuels to produce plastic, and otherwise deplete our natural resources. Recycling also reduces the amount of material sent to landfills, preserving that land for better uses.

The Ferrous Metal Recycling Process

Harmon Scrap Metal sells millions of pounds of scrap metal to companies and manufacturers each year that use the recycled metal to produce products that consumers use every day. We are proud to play a small part in helping to protect our environment and encouraging the use of recycled materials.
