"Scrapyard Near Me" aims to highlight the many environmental benefits of recycling metal. According to statistics from the EU, reusing metals and other raw materials reduces CO2 emissions by an estimated 200 million tons per year. Additional figures show that the use of recycled steel cuts air pollution by 85%, water use by 40%, and water pollution by 76%.

Additionally, recycling facilities will pay recyclers for most types of metals, so "Scrapyard Near Me" encourages readers with waste from home renovations, construction projects, and other sources to consider visiting their local junkyard. However, the price of metal varies depending on the quality and type, which is why the company stresses that it’s important to be able to distinguish them.

"Scrapyard Near Me’s" guide says that metals can be broadly categorized into two main groups: ferrous and non-ferrous. Ferrous metals, such as carbon steel, alloy steel, cast iron, wrought iron, and stainless steel, are magnetic due to their iron content and are thus widely used for electrical devices and the automotive industry. They are also strong and durable, making them ideal for construction, manufacturing, and home appliances.

On the other hand, non-ferrous metals, which include aluminum, copper, bronze, nickel, titanium, and brass, are lightweight and have excellent conductivity. Because they lack iron, they are also non-magnetic and resistant to corrosion, giving them applications in plumbing, aviation, and consumer electronics. Both ferrous and non-ferrous metals can be recycled repeatedly without any significant degradation in quality.

By identifying and sorting their waste accordingly, consumers can maximize the value of any quantity of scrap metal they bring to a junkyard. Pittsburgh residents who want to locate one can use "Scrapyard Near Me’s" online directory to find the facility closest to them.
