Learning about Recycling

Hello, I am Evan Nadal. When I first started recycling, we placed each of the materials in separate bins. Sometimes, separate trucks would come pick up the cardboard, glass and plastic materials. Today, we can simply place all of the items in a single bin for the truck to pick up each week. The materials are automatically sorted at the facility. After the preparation and processing procedure, the new materials are shipped out to manufacturers that create new packaging and products from those supplies. I want to explore the recycling process from beginning to end on this site. I will talk about manufacturing with recycled materials as well. Please visit my site daily to learn more.

Metal Scrapping: What You Can Recycle After Summer Is Over

by Eleanor Holland

Now that the summer season is wrapping up, it is time to clear out your yard of any old metal debris you have left. Some of what you have laying around could fetch you a good bit of cash when you take it in for recycling. Here are a few examples of some good potential metal scraps you may have.

Old Barbecue Grills

Was this the last year for your old barbecue grill? If so, take it into retirement by selling it as scrap. Any grills partially made from stainless steel will bring in a higher payout because of the value of the metal. Before you take your grill in for recycling, however, be sure you have removed the propane tanks and the lines are free of any gas. After you recycle your grill, you now have some money to put towards a new one for next summer!

Old Lawn Mowers

If you have an old lawn mower that has seen its last summer, consider taking it in for scrap metal recycling. Nowadays, mowers are not only more efficient at manicuring your lawn, but they are also more environmentally friendly. Before you take your old lawn mower into the metal scrap yard, drain any residual fuel and oil from the motor.

Old Patio Furniture

Patio furniture is another great item you can recycle. After years in the rain and sun, your old patio furniture has seen its last days. Not only does old patio furniture look unattractive on your porch or patio, but it is also unsafe. This is especially true if there are any rusty spots on the metal. You or your family members could get hurt.

You can bring any type of metal patio furniture in for recycling, including cast iron, wrought iron, stainless steel, or aluminum.

Old Above Ground Swimming Pools

If your above ground metal swimming pool has seen its last day, or if you simply do not use it any longer, you can take the metal components in to be recycled. Be sure to rally your friends or family members to help you disassemble the pool, as it is a large job for one person to do alone. You can then take the metal surround, the pump, tank, and anything else made from metal to the scrapyard. Once the pool is gone, you will have a nice new area to recreate in a way that makes you happy!
