It’s unfortunate how many people are missing out on a real recycling experience. The cause is questionable. One sentiment nested in the minds of many is that recycling is pointless and all those materials end up in a landfill anyway. Then we have the blue and green bins with the clockwise-flowing arrows, undoubtedly convenient for recycling cans, bottles, cardboard, and some other plastics. Of course, too, we have the good ‘ole dollar- “I’m not getting any money by putting my bottles in that bin, so why go to the trouble?” And sure, despite our efforts, some of the blame falls on us; Raleigh Metal Recycling hasn’t quite made its case for why more should visit one of the greenest places in the Triangle.
Live a little. At least once.
If to recycle you go no farther than the end of the driveway, it might be time to consider mixing it up some. After all, that convenient little recycling container can’t handle a broke-down lawn mower, can it? How about a bicycle? Those old brass door handles? Chances are that a lot of metal you no longer want is either prohibited or too much for the recycling bin to handle, particularly if we’re talking about a junk car.
But here at Raleigh Metal Recycling, we eat junk cars and all sorts of other metallic objects for breakfast. Rain, shine, or snow, we’re going to 11 times out of 10 be opened on the hours we say we’re open.
Yeah, we’re pretty extreme about recycling.
May the recycling speak for itself
A line like “A recycling experience you’ll never forget” is frankly too cliche for us, so we’ll let what you see upon a visit speak louder than the lame phrases. Bring some aluminum cans into the facility and watch them get launched at speeds greater than 100 mph out of our polished-up can machine.
