It sure got me when you said that recycling scrap metal is beneficial to the environment as doing so will ensure that recycling aluminum saves 95% of the energy used to make new aluminum. If that is the case, then I will just sell the aluminum that I found lying around my cousin’s garage for scrap. I knew I was right when I decided to take them off his hands. Thank you for sharing the info. It’s good to know I’m doing something for the environment.

I had no idea just how much energy recycling metals saved due to recycling being much more energy efficient than extraction. I’ve even read that smaller things like cables and copper wiring can be recycled using specialty machines. Given the technology we now have to protect the earth’s natural resources through responsible recycling, I think it would be important if everyone were educated about the benefits that recycling metals can have on the earth and economy.
