Sure, there are tons of environmental benefits to recycling scrap metal. Over 70 million tons to be exact - the amount of scrap recycled in the USA every year. But we think the true measure of our own environmental commitment is how we go about recycling this precious metal in the first place. How we're continually improving our electrical and mechanical efficiencies and developing better separation processes to extract every ounce of metal in the recycling process. And how we are reducing the volume of materials sent to landfills. Our goal is zero waste.
We are deeply rooted in the communities where we do business and are respected for our sustainability and our environmentally sound practices. All AMR recycling facilities are environmentally safe operations, fully complying with all EPA regulations. This assures all of our customers that their scrap will be handled in an environmentally safe manner.
