Benefits of Recycling
Nothing good happens when items end up in the landfill. However, when material is diverted for recycling a chain reaction of positive impacts occurs.
- Metal can be recycled an infinite amount of times.
- The recycling of metal reduces the need for mining virgin materials. This represents a significant reduction in greenhouse gas emissions.
- Automotive recycling helps remove old, inefficient, vehicles from the road, improving air quality and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
- Colorado Industrial Recycling walks the walk, recycling everything we can. In addition to metals, cardboard, glass, wood, and concrete, we also recycle the automotive fluids from the vehicles we process and divert our rainwater to the local water treatment plant.
