The prospect of making money out of scrap materials that will be reused later on may be tempting to people aware of multiple related environmental concerns. Australia, in particular, uses up to 450,000 tonnes of steel a year for various purposes; its mining industry is also bustling with activity but at an energy-intensive risk, plus safety issues such as tailings. As such, you can do your part for the environment by arranging a scrap metal pick up through companies like Global Resources.
