Scrapping metal is great for making some extra cash, but did you know scrapping metal also helps the environment? Scrap metal lying in your yard or in the junkyard, can release harmful chemicals and refrigerants into the air, soil, and even into the drinking water supply. By recycling these metal scraps, we keep harmful chemicals at bay and reduce the amount of natural sources depleted by creating new metal. Companies like Anestis Metal, recycle various metals and help the environment in several ways:

Saving Energy

Mining and creating new metal consumes an excessive amount of energy compared to scrapping. By recycling the metal we already have, we save on the energy used. According to the Steel Recycling Institute, steel recycling saves enough energy to power the equivalent of 18 million homes for a year.

Reduce Pollution

Not only does recycling metal reduce the chemicals that seep into the soil, but it also helps reduce the amount of pollution that goes into the air. The heavy machinery used to mine and make the new metal, release far more pollutants than a recycling plant would.

Conserves Natural Resources

When creating new metal, many resources are used up such as ore, water, coal, and limestone. By recycling, we can decrease the amount of natural resources that we deplete from the earth and helping to be less wasteful!

If you are looking for items to scrap, aluminum baseball bats are a great item! Here are some tips on how to get the most out of your baseball bat when you are trying to scrap it.

Remove Rubber & Plastic- To get the best prices for your baseball or softball bat, completely remove the heavy rubber or plastic that is around the handle. Also there might be plastic around the top so make sure to cut out the plastic and clean the aluminum since any contaminants on the bat will reduce the price of the scrap profit you worked hard on.

Cut Bat Open– Sometimes you can find foam on the inside of your bat so make sure to cut the bat open to check. You can open up the baseball bat with a sawzall to see if it’s empty and if it isn’t remove the foam in order to get a cleaner aluminum price from your local scrapyard company.

Recycling Aluminum- Scrap yards will offer a cleaner price for the metal if the baseball bats are without any contaminants on it and it will be easier for them to recycle. Also remember that there are other sports metal materials that can be scrapped so be sure to research about them and touch base with a local scrap yard if you have any questions about certain metals.

If you are looking to scrap your baseball or softball bats for some extra money, come to Anestis Metals or call us at 978-681-6000 and we can offer you the best price for your aluminum metals!

To help the future of our generation and the generations to come, recycling is the best action to take. By recycling, you can conserve energy and materials, clean up the environment, reduce garbage in landfills, and make new products from old ones. Here are some reasons as to why you should start recycling today!

Landfills- Try to keep materials out of landfills since the fewer landfills there are, there will be more land left in its natural state. By recycling an old vehicle to a junkyard, your car will be recycled and reused in multiple ways.

Energy- Recycling metals and aluminum takes significantly less energy than it does to produce it. Recycling even a small aluminum can allow one to save enough energy to run a TV for at least three hours. In addition, a lightbulb can be lit for 24 hours with energy saved from each pound of steel recycled. We can reduce the future effects of global warming by saving energy through recycling.

Our Environment- There are many benefits of recycling, it reduces mining, prevents habitat destruction and soil erosion. We can help save our environment by decreasing the need for new materials which can reduce greenhouse gases, air & water pollutant. Recycling can not only help our planet but also our society. This is because recycling helps create the development of greener technologies and new product innovations.

Save More- One of the easiest ways to make an impact for our environment is to recycle your junk car. Every bit of recycling makes a significant difference. To make a better future start recycling your plastic, paper, glass, and metal objects now!

Old Vehicle- You don’t have to let your old vehicle go to waste! Your old junk car can be used in many different ways and you can actually make a profit from this process. Recycling the car parts to a junkyard will get you quick cash and you can invest it in another vehicle that’s eco-friendly or electric. Using public transportation in your area are also a great way to further your environmental efforts.
