Environmental awareness is something of a hot topic at the moment, with emergent burdens both politically and socially to act up to our duties to the planet and its continuing conservation. After decades, even centuries of pollution and tedious resource depletion, we are now at a phase where far more cautiousness must be done in the way we live our lives. Of course business and trade can’t simply halt for the sake of the Earth, and hence the process of recycling resources has become ever more prominent over the last few years, predominantly in the scrap metal trade which has been kept afloat as a result.
Scrap metal begins its life as any other metal material. It is built for a purpose and is every so often reserved for that particular use, be it in machinery, building or construction, technology or agriculture, where it will linger forever more in an ideal world. But, what happens when that machine breaks down, or the building is wiped out to make way for some newer construction projects? The metal from there becomes scrap, undesirable and many look to just get rid of it out of their hands, typically by visiting a scrap metal dealer who will buy various bits of metal for money. So what’s the big deal about recycling then?
When people think of recycling, they have a tendency to think of some chemical or mechanized process whereby a recycling plant takes some old and transforms it in to something totally new, suitable for reuse ad set for sale. We also tend to think of this as an environmentally friendly practice, but we’re never really told why. In fact, recycling can be the procedure of melting scrap metals for resale, but it can also be placed under the heading of what your run of the mill scrap dealer will do when he sells a bit of metal on to someone else. Recycling can be defined as reusing in any sense of the word, which is ecologically friendly for one key purpose – the more scrap metal introduced again into circulation, the less metal that has to be manufactured once more.
