Happy Metal Monday! Each week, we like to share a bit about our business that focuses on the metal part of what we do. Sometimes, it might have to do with the materials we use, sometimes it might focus more on tools we like or techniques we employ to make our work unique.
This week, we thought we’d touch on a topic that probably spans many industries and businesses - waste.
We go through a lot of metal each week! Just like many other industries, we do our best to minimize waste, but inevitably, there are pieces and parts that just end up being unusable.
So what happens to all of this scrap? Luckily, many of the materials we use are able to be recycled and reused later down the line, particularly our sheet metal We normally either sell or trade our used material to a metal collector, who then takes it to the next step of the recycling process where it will eventually be melted down and turned back into another metal product to be resold.
Do you recycle? Whether on a large or small scale, it seems like every little bit counts and will make a difference. Have you found that some things are easier to get in the habit of recycling than others? Let us know in the comments - we’re always looking for ways we can improve our habits, both in our business and at home!
