Recycling is especially important in this highly populated area. Los Angeles is the second largest city in the United States and L.A. county holds the record for the highest populated county in the country. While most think of the area as a center of music, culture and cinema, L.A. is also home to a significant industry sector including fortune 500 companies specializing in construction and metals. Regardless of the economic makeup of the area, the high number of people living here mean that landfills and waste management must work hard to serve the area and dispose of the large amounts of trash produced. Our recycling center helps make recycling possible and reduces the waste that this big urban center inevitably produces.
Why Recycling Matters in Santa Fe Springs
At this recycling center, we purchase both scrap metal and CRV items. By recycling these items, you will not only free up valuable space in your home or business, you’ll also reduce pollution and contamination. Recycling metal reduces greenhouse gases since the need for mining and obtaining new materials is reduced or eliminated. Processing and manufacturing items with recycled material are also often less energy intensive than making products from all new materials.
Recycling scrap metal and CRV items are part of our responsibility to take care of our planet. At this Ecology Recycling Center, we take our commitment to the next level by constantly striving to use the latest and most eco-friendly techniques.
Benefits of Recycling
Do your part in saving the environment by recycling. The benefits of recycling your items are:
- Recycling saves energy.
- Recycling helps protect the environment.
- Recycling reduces incineration ash.
Contamination and pollution can be greatly reduced through recycling, in part because these items don’t end up in the trash, but also because fewer new materials are needed when creating new items. The use of new materials often requires activities such as mining and additional manufacturing processes that increase greenhouse emissions.
Everyone in Santa Fe Springs and the surrounding areas have a responsibility to recycle CRV items as their contribution to taking care of our planet earth. In addition to providing access to recycling centers, Ecology constantly strives to use the latest, most environmentally conscious techniques in our processes.
What is CRV?
CRV recycling is part of California’s laws and regulations making sure that consumers are paid for recycling at certified recycling centers. CRV stands for California Refund Value and refers to the amount paid to consumers for recycling metals, particularly beverage containers. Saving your beverage containers such as soda, beer and juice cans, vegetable juice cans and wine bottles, etc. can pay off. When brought in bulk, your CRV can add up, making your trip worthwhile. Furthermore, you’ll participate in the important job of recycling which helps care for our planet earth.
What Counts As Scrap Metal?
Scrap metal is typically divided between ferrous and non-ferrous metals. Ecology’s Santa Fe Springs CRV and scrap metal recycling center buy both ferrous and non-ferrous metals. Ferrous metals are largely composed of iron or steel along although other elements are also added to produce certain properties in the metal. Ferrous metals are typically found in vehicle scrap, demolition site scrap, some old appliances, structural steel and metal offsets from manufacturing warehouses and industries. Another typical characteristic of ferrous metals is that they are magnetic.
Non-ferrous metals do not have iron or steel mixed in with them and are typically more valuable than ferrous metals. Aluminum, copper, brass and stainless steel are some common non-ferrous metals. These metals may be found in items such as window frames, cars, bicycles, faucets, doorknobs, wires, some appliances, and kitchenware. Stainless steel is deceptive since it does contain iron, but is considered non-ferrous because it is not magnetic and also contains nickel.
