USA Recycling Industries, Inc. (USRI) Plays Growing Role in America’s Recycling Industry

Although the idea of recycling is nothing new, few people realize the scope or growth of the modern recycling industry, or the size of its potential. Modern recycling is relatively young, with only a few decades under its belt. Nevertheless, nearly one third of all solid waste generated is now estimated to be recycled in one form or another. This is a remarkable figure considering the immensity of waste material produced on a daily basis in industrialized nations like the U.S.

According to the EPA, Americans, separate from industrial waste, generate roughly 250 million tons of trash each year, a figure that has understandably been on the rise as the population increases, although the per capita generation of waste has leveled off, and even slightly decreased. The EPA says that, nationally, we now recycle and compost just over 85 million tons of such solid waste, providing an annual benefit of more than 186 million metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent emissions reduced, comparable to the annual greenhouse gas emissions from over 36 million passenger vehicles. In addition, they indicate that recycling and composting more than 85 million tons of such material has resulted in the saving of more than 1.3 quadrillion Btu of energy, the equivalent of over 229 million barrels of oil. So recycling is now a big and very serious business, increasingly seen as critical to achieving the world’s environmental goals.

USA Recycling is fast becoming a lead player in American recycling by providing a growing network of recyclable waste collection and disposal service centers. These centers are currently focused on serving the automotive aftermarket industry, where they collect scrap metal, used tires and batteries, and even used motor oil and lubricants, from automotive service centers around the country. The material is then sent to steel mills, re-refining centers, and other operations where it can be safely processed to stay out of America’s landfills.
