Dearborn Scrap Metal Recycling Services

Americans throw out a lot of garbage. As a matter of fact, we throw out close to 289 million tons of trash a year. That works out to about five pounds, per person, per day. Metal scrap recycling frees up valuable landfill space for items that truly cannot be recycled like food matter and non-recyclable plastics. It also provides a number of environmental benefits.

Dearborn Scrap MetalIn terms of the environment, scrap metal recycling in Dearborn saves energy and is more efficient than sourcing raw materials. Extracting and refining raw metals through the traditional mining process uses quite a lot of energy. It also causes environmental hazards, such as poisonous runoff, groundwater pollution, and habitat destruction.

Great Lakes is a leader in purchasing ferrous metal and non-ferrous metal, as well as cars and car parts for scrap metal recycling. According to the Institute for Scrap Metal Recycling, nearly 500,000 jobs have been created and tens of billions of dollars contributed to the country’s gross domestic product. Scrap metal recycling is a big business and Great Lakes Recycling Advanced is proud to be a part of it.
