Metal recycling helps to protect the wider environment and saves energy. Scrap metals have a high market value, with their ability to be re-used again and again. The use of scrap metals conserves natural resources. Most metals can be recycled repeatedly, without degrading their properties. A scrap metal recycling facility is like supplying raw materials for the construction, transportation, and manufacturing industries. Increased use of scrap material reduces the demand for mined ore, which cuts back the use of this non-renewable resource and reduces the disruption of land and natural habitats.
