Who We Are

As a Philadelphia waste management company, it’s our responsibility to be stewards of the environment. The way we do this is by working to reduce our carbon footprint both at the facility and in the community. We have implemented programs and strategies that have had a large positive impact on reducing, reusing, and recycling our waste.

Why Buy Recycled Iron Products

When you buy recycled iron products, you’re doing your part to help the environment. Recycling is a sustainable way to preserve natural resources, reduce the amount of waste that goes into landfills, and help protect the environment from pollution.

You’re also saving money when you buy recycled Iron. By purchasing recycled products instead of new ones, you can save up to 80% on your purchase. Not only that but buying used items helps keep them out of landfills and out of the trash where they would have been destined for incineration or burial in a landfill anyway.

Finally, buying recycled iron products means supporting companies that are socially responsible in their practices and their policies. These companies believe in giving back to their communities by donating profits from sales to charities or causes that support environmental sustainability and social causes like education or healthcare services for low-income families.

Why Recycling Is Critical For Our Environment

Recycling iron is critical to our environment because it helps us save energy and reduce the amount of CO2 emissions we produce.

Recycling one ton of steel can save 1,000 pounds of CO2, and the same amount of steel can be recycled over and over again, making it a much more environmentally friendly option than using new materials.

When you recycle iron, you are saving an average of 95% of the energy that would be used in manufacturing new steel from ore. This reduces CO2 emissions by an average of approximately 1,200 pounds per tonne, which is equivalent to driving about 3,000 miles in an average car!

Recycling one ton of steel can save 772 pounds of iron ore, 9 pounds of coal, 3 cubic yards of landfill space, 1,300 kilowatt-hours of energy, and 590 gallons of water.

Iron recycling also decreases the amount of energy required to make new steel by 55 percent.

Iron is a common metal that is used in many products. You can find it in buildings, bridges, cars, and appliances as well as in many items that we use every day, such as tools and appliances. When these products are no longer useful, they can be recycled into new things instead of being thrown away or landfilled.
