Aluminum scrap metal recycling, ladies and gentlemen, happens all the day long in Goldsboro, NC! Check out this excerpt from an article by The Aluminum Association: “The amount of energy saved just from recycling cans in 2011 is equal to the energy equivalent of over 17 million barrels of crude oil. That’s the amount of oil needed to fuel more than 1 million vehicles on the road for 12 months.”
Yes, that news is from a couple of years ago, but it’s still just as valid today. Basic math and oil haven’t changed too much over the past century, and we believe that in this world, the more aluminum can recycling the better! This is exactly why we offer an extra $0.03 per pound of aluminum cans on Wednesdays. Drop by our facility, Goldsboro Metal Recycling, located at 801 N. John Street, Goldsboro, NC. There’ll be a scrap metal recycling party going on! Scrap those aluminum cans. The only time you’ll get extra this week is TODAY, Wednesday, at one of the best places for scrap recycling in the area. After one of our friendly staff pours your cans onto the conveyer of our premium can machine, you’ll be able to stand back, relax, and enjoy the sight of your cans getting weighed and then popped out the other side! So taking your cans to Goldsboro Metal Recycling isn’t just helping the environment and giving you a little extra cash, it’s an entertaining and action-packed event that you’re likely to never forget!
After your aluminum cans (crushed or not) go through the can machine and out the other side as crushed cans, your load will get launched into a dumpster filled with hundreds of thousands of their crushed can friends! After that, the giant container of all the cans is dumped out onto a conveyer. The conveyer carries all of them up an incline. Shortly after the cans reach the top of the incline, they fall into a rectangular hole. A big, giant steel block then compresses the thousands of cans together, mashing them into “bales.” You can see many of these bales of cans in the below image.
