Sims Metal Management recently released an infographic to help consumers know where to find household recyclable scrap metal. “Many homeowners already know to recycle things like glass and plastic, but are often unaware of the abundance of recyclable scrap metal in their homes,” said Dawn Miner, national marketing manager for Sims Metal Management.
According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), only 35 percent of Americans recycle. Inspired by those low numbers, Sims Metal Management constructed an infographic to display five places where metal scrap can be easily found in your home. Sims Metal Management wants consumers to learn and understand what metals you can recycle and the enormous value generated from these efforts.
“This infographic will help consumers identify what qualifies as scrap metal within their homes to help jumpstart awareness of recycling and its benefits to the environment,” stated Bob Kelman, president of Sims Metal Management, North America.
