At Cheshunt Metals Ltd, we’re proud to be an important part of an industry that’s actively fighting against climate change; but many of our Hertfordshire clients often wonder exactly how scrap metal merchants benefit the environment. So that’s why in this article, we’ve looked to break this down.
If you’re more interested in getting a quote directly from our scrap merchants, feel free to skip right to the chase and call us on 01992 642 066 or 01992 625 622. We pride ourselves on our professionalism and transparency, and will ensure you get the best price possible for your scrap metal. Don’t worry if you can’t visit our scrap yard – we provide a collection service throughout Hertfordshire and North London.
Less Reliance Upon Mining – Raw materials gathered from mining are finite and exhaustible, so reducing reliance upon this limited stock is a major benefit with scrap metal recycling. Mining also leads to the release of toxic minerals and elements into the air and nearby water bodies. So avoiding this contamination is another advantage that any Hertfordshire client making use of scrap metal merchants contributes to.
Energy Savings – Did you know that recycling scrap metal into usable material uses around 95% less energy than the process to create new aluminium or steel? These energy savings mean less carbon emissions, and a happier, healthier ozone layer! The more recycling, the better – as currently only around a third of the world’s metal is recycled; our Hertfordshire based scrap metal merchants hope to be a part of increasing this share over the coming years.
Reduced Pollution - …so, to speak a little more on the aforementioned reduced pollution levels. Figures from the Environmental Protection Agency show that scrap metal recycling can reduce air pollution by 85%, and water pollution by 75%. These figures are just as significant as they seem at first glance! So by bringing your excess scrap metal to our Hertfordshire scrap merchants, you are playing an active part in reducing global CO2 emissions – all while making a pretty penny!
