-- Quote of the Day --
“I like being part of the green movement and being able to make a living. …The industry really has grown by leaps and bounds. …It is too bad that so many people refer to recycling as a dirty or nasty thing but when you go to scrap yards it is a very clean and neat place – where they are very environmentally conscious places that are very conscious of making sure oil is going in the right place and water quality is protected. Just recycling aluminum that has already been made saves 80% of the energy that would have been used to make new aluminum from raw ore. …we’ve gotten things in my scrap yard that is 100, 300 years old. …Any type of scrap metal that you have is recyclable, it doesn’t matter what kind you have. In fact, the rustier the better - because it will have a higher quality of steel. …For us it is all about the green movement – what can you do to help the green movement? To make your generation better than the one before? And one of the biggest things we have to do now is recycle, reuse and promote all the good things that are going on.”
