Getting rid of scrap metal and large amounts of rubber or plastic is not only convenient for you, but it also helps with keeping things eco-clean!

Below are listed some important facts that will encourage you to dispose of your junk in an environment-friendly manner:

Recycling Plastic:

If only five of those bottles had been recycled, it would have produced enough fiberfill to stuff a ski jacket.  If all that plastic was properly disposed of, what possible benefits would we enjoy?


Turning in scrap metal:

Arlington recyclingInstead of letting your old junker rust away in the backyard, have it towed away and recycled is definitely worth it. Toxic fumes are created when the metal is first manufactured. Recycling old metal means less production of new metal; which in turn helps lower air pollution. Recycling one aluminum pop can generate enough energy to play a full album on your iPod. Turn in 100 cans, and you can light your bedroom for two weeks. It takes as much energy to process 20 old cans, as it does to make one new one. But cars and pop cans are not the only items that need attention. Few people realize that something as small as a Hershey Kiss can be a problem. More than 20,000,000 Kisses are wrapped each day; using 133 square miles of tinfoil.  Every scrap of which can be recycled again for future use. For environmental efficiency, and for the sake of tomorrow, properly dispose of all the metal, both small and large — it’s most certainly worth it!

Instead of letting old computers, mattress springs, bed frames, or leaky ice chests gather dust in your backyard or garage, get rid of them.
