Why is it Important to Recycle on a Large Scale?

First things first, it’s incredibly important to recycle all kinds of metals for many reasons. Not only are you helping the environment by doing so, but you can also earn money from your waste metal.

Most of us will recycle metals by throwing small objects such as empty tins into the recycling bin and thinking nothing more of it. But, did you know that if you have a large amount of waste metal (from a building project, for example) then you should be recycling this scrap too? In fact, it’s arguably even more important to be disposing of this kind of waste in the correct way.

It was estimated by ‘WRAP’ that 2011 saw a whopping 100 million tonnes of waste going to landfill as a result of construction activity. It is thought that a similar amount to this has been produced every year since. With so much of this waste material going to landfill and not being recycled, we thought now is the time to target this issue head-on. Pledging to those who produce large quantities of scrap metal to reduce, reuse and recycle.

Maxilead Metals are ever working towards creating a better environment through recycling scrap metals. We are proud to provide an extensive range of recycling solutions to help your business actively contribute to the sustainability of natural resources and the protection of our environment.

To help you help us in this mission, here are some reasons as to why you should be recycling on a large scale.

Because… it’s easy

No this isn’t a trick. We live in an age where it’s actually easier to recycle your scrap rather than just throw it away. Maxilead offers a collection service in which we can come to you and take away your scrap so you need not worry about it.

Because… it helps the environment

One of the most important reasons for recycling on a large scale is that it helps the environment.

Making products from recycled metals uses less energy, reduces carbon emissions, and uses less water compared to using raw materials. This means that by recycling your commercial metal waste, you can help contribute to the reduction of harmful emissions and help save water, too.

Because you can earn £££’s

Alongside becoming more environmentally aware, you can also earn money from recycling your scrap metal. Maxilead Metals offer competitive metal buying rates and take a large range of ferrous and non-ferrous metals.

There are so many reasons as to why you should recycle on a large scale, that it’s hard to find a reason not to.
