why RECYCLE YOUR scrap aluminium

So why recycle your scrap aluminium? Recycling aluminium is important for several reasons:

Conservation of natural resources: Aluminium is a finite resource, and recycling it helps to conserve the natural resources needed to produce new aluminium. Recycling just one aluminium can saves enough energy to power a 60-watt light bulb for more than four hours.

Energy savings: Producing aluminium from recycled aluminium requires only 5% of the energy needed to produce aluminium from raw materials. Recycling aluminium can also reduce greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution associated with aluminium production.

Economic benefits: Recycling aluminium creates jobs and stimulates local economies. It also helps reduce waste disposal costs.

Reduced landfill waste: Aluminium can take hundreds of years to decompose in landfills. Recycling aluminium helps reduce the amount of waste sent to landfills and helps conserve valuable landfill space.

Overall, recycling aluminium is an environmentally and economically sound practice that helps conserve natural resources, save energy, and reduce waste.
