Sims Metal Management Shares Household Scrap Metal Recycling Tips

Infographic Displays 5 Places to Find Metal Scrap in Your Home

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - January 22, 2014) - Sims Metal Management, the world's largest metals and electronics recycler, recently released an infographic to help consumers know where to find household recyclable metal scrap. Although much material received at Sims Metal Management is from industrial companies, homeowners, who are typically unaware of recyclable scrap metal in their homes, are encouraged to recycle as well.

According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), only 35 percent of Americans recycle. As we start off the New Year, Sims Metal Management is promoting this visual to help consumers learn and understand what metals you can recycle and the enormous value generated from these efforts.

"While most have become familiar with the recycling of paper, plastics, glass, metal bottles, and cans, many are still not familiar with the recycling of other types of scrap metal," stated Bob Kelman, president of Sims Metal Management, North America. "This infographic will help consumers identify what qualifies as scrap metal within their homes, to help jumpstart awareness of recycling and its benefits to the environment."

Sims Metal Management has approximately 270 facilities on five continents, including more than 100 in North America. Some of the major North American locations include Chesapeake, Va., Chicago, Detroit, Memphis, Tenn., Morrisville (Philadelphia area), Pa., Newark, N.J., New York City, North Haven, Conn., Northwest, Ohio, Providence, R.I., Redwood City, Calif., Richmond, Calif., Richmond, Va., Sacramento, Calif., San Francisco, Trenton, N.J., Tulsa, Okla., and Worcester, Mass.
