Scrap Metal Recycling Business for Sale

BizQuest has the best scrap metal recycling businesses for sale!

According to the EPA, approximately 7% to 10% of landfill waste consists of scrap metal. That may not sound like a lot, but it’s the equivalent of over 20 million tons. Some statistics indicate that ferrous metal (iron-based) accounts for two-thirds of all steel manufactured in the U.S., while non-ferrous is especially important for resource conservation. Lead-acid batteries are an example of non-ferrous metal that accounts for at least 69% of scrap. Yet, only one-third of either type of metal (or around 7 tons) is sent to a scrap metal recycling center. That trend is changing, however, as more and more people begin to realize the industry’s significance to both the environment and national employment.

As recently as 2011, over 130 million metric tons of scrap metal, paper, glass, plastic and rubber, textiles, and electronics were recycled by the $77 billion Scrap Metal industry. Over the past few years, the industry has declined slightly due to the higher expense of sheet metal. But analysts believe metal prices are expected to plummet soon, causing an industry-wide growth spurt by 2020. Finding a scrap metal recycling business for sale could be a great way to salvage your financial future. Browse our site now and request more information on scrap metal recycling businesses!
