San Jose Scrap Metal Recycling Company Ranch Town Recycling Explains Top 3 Reasons to Recycle Copper
Ranch Town Recycling, a San Jose scrap metal recycling company, gives 3 reasons copper recycling is growing in popularity.
San Jose, CA (PRWEB) January 23, 2012
Ranch Town Recycling says that with a relatively high demand this year, as compared to supply, the market for recycled copper is booming. The San Jose scrap metal recycling company explains the top 3 reasons people should recycle copper.
1. Recycling copper makes good financial sense
Recycled copper is worth up to 90 percent of the cost of the original copper. It is also cheaper to recycle copper than it is to mine and extract new copper, and recycling helps keep the cost of copper products down.
2. Recycling copper is environmentally beneficial
Ranch Town Recycling points out that recycling just one ton of copper saves 15 percent of the energy used in extracting and producing the same amount of virgin copper. Less energy used means a saving in fossil fuels, which are also non-renewable. Using less energy also means fewer greenhouse gases are released into the environment.
Recycling copper also saves limited resources. While at present only about 12 to 13 percent of known copper deposits have been extracted and used, copper is a non-renewable resource and deposits can be used up.
3. Demand for copper is rising
With intrinsic properties, such as high conductivity and resistance to corrosion, copper is a suitable material for use in electrical wires, and plumbing and heating pipes. And as more and more products are now equipped with computer and electronic components, its usage and demand is expanding, making copper the third most-produced metal, after iron and aluminum.
The San Jose copper recycling company makes it easy to recycle copper, and is happy to purchase copper materials from sources like wires, pipes, plumbing and demolition remnants. Ranch Town Recycling also accepts other metals, cans and bottles, and e-waste.
“When you come into Ranch Town Recycling we always recommend that you have your material sorted, whether it is aluminum cans, plastic bottles and glass bottles, scrap metal, or e-waste. Our staff is more than willing to help you sort these items and assist you with any questions you may have. This will ensure that we can provide you with quick and excellent service to get you paid and on your way,” Suleman Valeni of Ranch Town Recycling said.
