When it’s time to update or renovate your Geelong, Surfcoast or Bellarine home, don’t forget to recycle your scrap metal!
Whether you are moving into your new home, or are updating your outdoor furniture in your existing home, it’s worth remembering to contact us so that those precious metals don’t get thrown away into landfill.
The same can be said about updating your office or commercial premises. If you have a Geelong business or a business down by the Surfcoast or Bellarine, make a note to call us and we can do the heavy lifting, as well as ensure that not only will you beautify your surroundings, you will be doing your bit for our all-important environment.
We as a community, are now used to recycling on a weekly basis with our rubbish bins, taking our own bags to the supermarket and shops to reduce waste. Let’s not forget to go one small step further and take time out to consider what furniture, equipment or household items you no longer need may contain scrap metal.
Keep in mind that if you are doing a renovation, don’t forget that your roofing, metal gutters and old metal garden sheds are great for recycling. We will even come in and take it away for you. You won’t have to lift a finger.
Now let’s turn our attention to the kitchen. You will be surprised how much metal can be recycled when renovating a kitchen. Right through from the fridge, taps, microwave and oven to the old stainless-steel appliances and copper canisters you never use.
Metal furniture doesn’t just have to be your outdoor furniture. Many homes and offices are filled with desks, molded chairs, brass beds, metal cabinets and stainless-steel topped tables.
If you like statistics to put in to perspective how every little bit of scrap metal recycling helps our environment. Then here it is;
Victoria recycles around 1 million tons of commercial metal per year. That's the equivalent "everyday" greenhouse gas savings of driving a car over 8 billion km or driving around the equator 214 thousand times!
