Ring in the New Year With Recycling

December 30, 2019

Happy New Year! As we begin the new year many are setting resolutions. We at Okon Metals Recycling, located in Dallas, Texas, have a resolution for you, Recycle! Make 2020 the year you, and/or your business, invest in the Earth’s environmental stability. We know recycling can be inconvenient, so why should you commit? Here’s why:

Wildlife and Resources

Most people know that paper is made from trees. If you do not recycle paper, more trees need to be cut down. Trees simply cannot grow quickly enough to compensate for this loss. If the only thing you do is recycle paper, you are saving millions of trees. This is also true for other natural resources and wildlife. When we continue to consume without recycling we are damaging other natural resources and habitats of wild animals.


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

Reduces Waste

Waste is created when we throw items away. When something gets thrown in the trash can, it is taken to the Landfill. When items can be recycled, materials are broken down and reused to make something new. This reduces the amount of waste going into landfills which in turn reduces the amount of methane, a greenhouse gas, that is released into the atmosphere.
