After many years of pollution & depleting our resources, we are at a point where we must be careful with the way we treat our environment. We are responsible for taking care of the planet that we live on, and there are many steps that can be taken to help better our environment. Scrap metal recycling is a large part of that. Recycling scrap metal is both cost effective and environmentally friendly.
At TT&E Iron & Metal we are proud to recycle scrap metal for a better environment. Within weeks of coming into our facility, these metal scraps are processed into new products. Everything is processed on-site, sorted and shipped out to recyclers by truck or rail. We ship out 25 to 30 truckloads of recyclable metal each day, with each truckload weighing about 40,000 pounds.
The manufacture of metal can be taxing on the environment. That is why it is important to recycle what’s already been manufactured rather than create more and more metal. When we cut down on the manufacture of new metals, we are cutting down on the amount of toxic fumes and waste put out into the environment. The more scrap metal that we introduce into circulation, the less metal that has to be produced with this process at the expense of the environment. Promoting the trade of scrap metal helps better our environment.
