Recycling saves energy that in turn reduces greenhouse gas emissions. Ten pounds of aluminum cans reduces greenhouse gas emissions by 16 pounds, which is the energy equivalent of seven gallons of gasoline. As individuals, we can make a positive impact on our environment and earn extra income by recycling scrap metals.
From all the most common items that end up in landfills, aluminum is the only material that’s 100% recyclable, and that pays for itself.
