How is Metal Recycling Good for the Environment, and How Can I Help?

There are numerous advantageous benefits to recycling scrap metal including:

  • Saving 75% on your energy bills when using recycled metal instead of natural resources
  • Slowing down polar ice caps melting
  • Cutting back on greenhouse gas emissions 
  • Recycled metal uses less energy than smelting virgin ore to create new metals
  • Preserving the environment for future generations

 

How Does Scrap Metal Recycling Save the Ocean?

Reduces Visual Pollution
One of the reasons that improper metal scrap recycling can harm the ocean environment is that it can pollute beautiful beaches, coastline and dive sites worldwide. Visual pollution doesn’t just destroy the essence of a place, it also destroys the homes of wildlife that may never return.

Less Need for Landfills
If we were to recycle all pieces of scrap metal that we could, rather than wasting it or loitering, there would be less need for landfill sites. Not only do landfill sites produce the largest sources of chemical and visual pollution, but they also increase Greenhouse Gas emissions that affect water vapour and decrease the quality of water levels in oceans.

Saves Natural Ocean Habitats
There are few processes as damaging to the environment as the process of mining. To create a mine site, you inadvertently destroy surrounding homes of nearby organisms – the risk of water contamination is drastically increased. Through recycling scrap metal, there is less need to rely on natural resources like mining, helping protect the valuable ocean and land habitats.

Avoiding Toxic Leaks
Scrap metal that is part of scrap metal waste can cause irreversible problems if it’s not disposed of properly. For example, choosing to throw away your laptop from two decades ago will end up in a landfill, which over time, causes toxic leakage into the soil and water. 

Reduced Chemical Pollution in the Ocean
The amount of transport requirements is drastically reduced when using recycled scrap metal. There is no need to import valuable natural resources from foreign countries via boat, resulting in reduced fuel consumption that is leaked into the atmosphere and the ocean.
