Scrap Metal Recycling Contributes to the Economy

Does your Phoenix Manufacturing Company Recycle its Scrap Metal?

Scrap metal recycling provides endless benefits including:

  • keeping a greener planet,
  • less expensive costs for production,
  • cuts down on energy consumption, and
  • boosts the economy. 

Recycling Scrap Metal Creates Jobs

Taking part in this easy practice helps to generate tax and provide thousands of green jobs to workers across the country.  About half a million jobs have been created by the scrap metal recycling industry according to the Institute for Scrap Recycling Industries (ISRI)

Recycling Scrap Metal reduces Mined Ore

Recycling more than 135 million metric tons of materials in 2014, scrap metal recycling helps to turn end-of-life metals into new, quality materials to be used in the Phoenix manufacturing industry.  Recycling metals reduces the demand for raw ores. Mining raw ore is an intensive process that depletes the environment’s natural resources and comes at a much higher cost. 

Let your business boost the economy and help Maricopa County thrive by recycling your scrap metal with Consolidated Resources.
