Okon Recycling Celebrates Earth Day!

April 30, 2021

At Okon Recycling, located in Dallas, Texas, EVERY day is Earth Day! Earth Day is an annual event held on April 22 to demonstrate support for environmental protection. Originally proposed in 1969 by Wisconsin Senator Gaylord Nelson, Earth Day has helped to grow the movement towards environmental stability, and support has exceeded expectations. The Environmental Protection Agency was established and the Clean Air Act was passed by the end of 1970. Since then Earth Day has grown to include more than 1 billion people in 193 countries. 

At Okon Recycling we wanted to do something extra special this year. We celebrated Earth Day in style by giving away a 65 inch eco-friendly smart TV and other valuable prizes! To win, you had to guess how many can were in bail. The answer: 23,386 cans!

Okon Metals Celebrates Earth Day

Did you know about 65% of America’s aluminum is currently recycled? Every minute an average of 123,097 aluminum cans are recycled. The average aluminum can contains more than 50% post-consumer recycled aluminum. 

However, we don’t just recycle cans here at Okon Recycling. While specializing in scrap metal, we also offer other services including: 

  • Commercial/Industrial Recycling Services
  • Recycling from the public
  • MRI Magnet Decommissioning/Recycling
  • Chiller & AC Units
  • On-Site Demo/Clean-Up
  • Oil, Gas, & Energy Recycling
  • E-Waste

When you recycle you are allowing a used product to be recreated into something new for consumption. The number of resources used to create a brand new product, rather than a recycled one, consumes renewable resources. Recycled products use less energy, less water, and create less toxic waste. By choosing to recycle you are lowering the number of renewable resources used which protects the Earth for future generations. 

Change starts with us. In our homes and our workplaces. If we are striving to leave the world a better and more sustainable place then each and every one of us has to do our part. Every choice we make can have a lasting effect on the environment. This is why recycling is so important. 

At Okon Recycling it is our mission to consistently deliver high prices, a clean and safe environment, as well as fast, friendly, and respectful service for all customers. Our 20 acre modernized concrete Community Recycling Center was specifically designed to deliver the best recycling experience in the industry. 

We not only guarantee great service, but you will be getting a trusted recycling partner with over 100 years of commercial metal recycling expertise. If you choose to utilize our services for scrap metal recycling, we are not a middle man. Our clients keep 100% of the scrap proceeds and deal directly with us for service.

Let’s partner recycle together and make every day Earth Day!
