Recycling one aluminum can, can save enough energy to keep a 100-watt bulb burning for almost four hours, or run your TV for three hours. Think about that fact. Think about that related to how many aluminum cans you have thrown out instead of recycled in your lifetime. Will you remember to recycle your next soda can now? At Direct Metals Recycling in Atlanta, GA, we hope so! Bringing us your aluminum for scrapping not only saves the earth and saves energy, but it also puts cash in your pocket!
There are lots of ways to collect aluminum for recycling. One of the easiest and most easily available supplies of aluminum is in old aluminum cans. On recycling day, ask your neighbors if you can sort through their bin and save their cans. It won’t take long to build up a large enough supply to bring in to sell! Another place to look for scrap aluminum is on old cars. Many car parts are made of aluminum including wheels and radiators. Aluminum wheels are made of a specific aluminum alloy that will be recycled back into new wheels. Just like all aluminum, it is cheaper and more environmentally friendly to reuse old aluminum wheels to make new ones, rather than creating new alloys.
Aluminum is by far one of the easiest types of metal to collect for scrapping. With only a reasonable amount of cans or other aluminum supply, you can get a handsome return from Direct Metals Recycling. Come by any of our Georgia or Tennessee locations today!
