Understand the Public Recycling Process

If you plan on bringing recyclable materials to our public recycling center, you might be curious about the recycling process. Take a look at the general steps that occur between when you drop off your recyclables, and when they make their way to their final destination:
  • Customer contributions – Our customers bring recyclables to our public recycling center.
  • Weighing and reporting – We weigh all recyclable materials and provide reporting and data when needed.
  • Sorting and cleaning – We sort recyclable materials and remove non-recyclable materials. We separate glass and metal. We then clean any items that were not cleaned prior to delivery.
  • Baling – Then we send each group to the baler. The baler transforms the recyclables into bales of paper, metal, plastic, and other materials.
  • Shipping and repurposing – We then ship these bales to manufacturing plants, where they are reused and repurposed.

Find Out Why You Should Sell Scrap Metal

Selling your scrap metal not only earns you some extra money, but it also reduces your carbon footprint and helps keep the Earth healthy. Recycling scrap metal can counteract some of the pollution that is produced during the production process. When a public recycling center recycles your metal scraps to be used for industrial needs, there is far less pollution than that created when new metal is produced. Other reasons why you should sell your scrap metal are that you can make room on your property, earn back some money, and fulfill a need.
