Its no secret that the world is fast running out of natural resources and the need for recycled material increases year upon year. So what bearing does this have on the haulage and heavy duty transport industry? The majority of products that are built in preparation for these services use different types of metals, many of which are known to be suitable for ruse once discarded. But time and cost is a factor and its easy for companies to throw away waste material instead of putting it to good use elsewhere.
Recycling facilities will accept most any object as long as it does not contain dangerous chemicals, which is good news for any haulage or heavy duty vehicle company that has spare parts or damaged equipment that may no longer be required, as these items can be shipped off in exchange for cash. For example, old metal piping and other bits of metal that are considered ‘scrap’ can be set to one side. Building up a dedicated area for scrap metals is good practise for encouraging long term recycling. No matter how small or redundant the item may seem, whether it’s a chain, hook or part of a lifting machinery, do your bit for the environment and give it up for recycling.
Businesses and individuals need a place to store scrap metal. Having a storage area will cut down on the amount of trips to the recycling facility. Businesses can store scrap metal in unused warehouse space. Individuals can rent a storage locker or make use of unused garage or attic space in their homes. To make the process more efficient, those in charge should create a schedule. For example, a business can collect metal four days a week and visit the recycling centre once a week on the same day.
Your actions can go along way to preventing the damage to the earth caused by pollution, not only for tomorrow but for generations to come. More information on using metal equipment for lifting and haulage can be found online at www.all-ways.com.au
