Know the Basics of Scrapping or Recycling

We humans have transformed planet Earth into the largely advanced society that we're fortunate enough to live in today. However, we also dump tons of unsafe materials into water supplies, groundwater tables, beaches, rivers, mountains, and everywhere else imaginable. In recent years, "green" frames of mind have been greeted with more optimism than ever before in modern history, thereby encouraging more people and organizations to pick up after their absent-minded, carefree counterparts.

Believe it or not, there's at least one way to make enough money to live on by recycling. Better known as "scrapping," the activity involves sourcing valuable metals and sometimes other substances, then recycling them in exchange for money at recycling centers. The only problem with scrapping for a living is not being able to source unlimited scrap metal!  

The Basics of Scrapping
Sourcing recycled copper, steel, aluminum, and other metals is generally cheaper than mining them. Construction supply and automobile manufacturers are two examples of companies that act as major purchasers of metals. Prices paid for scrap metals depend on global supply, government regulations, and other market factors. As such, you should be prepared to store your metals somewhere safe until their prices rebound. Timing your sales of scrap is one of the most important money-making moves that scrap metal collectors carry out.

You Need a Reliable Ride to Haul Bulk Metals
If you don't have access to your own heavy-duty truck, consider holding off from becoming a scrapper until you can source that vehicle. Scrap metal recycling isn't a gold rush and doesn't pay exceptionally well. Further, relying on someone else can tarnish connections with potential scrap metal sources.

Look for the Best-Paying Scrapyards!
Typically, rural-based scrapyards don't pay regionally-competitive wages due to smaller intake volumes of scrap metal and having to haul their recycling material so far when unloading their stores. Consider researching areas with scrapyards that pay objectively well.

If you see metal going unused, you have found a potential source for scrap metal. Most people want to get rid of their unsightly junk anyway. Whether you're buying and recycling copper wires or junk cars sussex county nj, research will be your best friend in determining which scrapping moves to make.

Reduce. Reuse. Recycle

Philippines is blessed with beautiful beaches but unfortunately, people is the one making it dirty by throwing or leaving garbage in the area. We need to be responsible enough to take care of our waste not just in beach or tourist spots area but within our homes too.

Now, that we experienced flooding in many areas because storms and even monsoon rains, we need to think twice when we throw our garbage just anywhere because it will practically come back to us in no time.

This is a campaign by :

Footprints Project ( where they envisions the Philippines with a healthy, sustainable and successful tourism enjoyed, promoted, and guarded by a people who are environmentally conscious, friendly, and responsible.

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

These days more government, non governmental organization and common people are trying their best to promote eco-friendly products and ways to minimize out waste. I have seen lots of store that is also implementing the use of reusable bags when they go shopping or in the grocery but it seems it has low turnout about this here in our side of the world.

I would have not thought that a company like Prime Electronic Components have teamed up with largest recyclers. They are buying used equipments, surplus electronic components and other scraps from offices or companies and they will find a way to have is check and sell them to other users at a much lower price. They are now selling hard drives, memory cards, computers, wireless networking, refurbished avaya definity phone system and lots more. Reduce, Reuse, Recycle: these are rules that this company is following and I think we should also follow.

LP: Recycled Candles

Where you can find candles being recycled? ONLY HERE i guess in the Phils. My SIL is a Mother Butler at a small chapel here in our place and she collects used candles after the mass. She cooks it again and later on they will use the recycled candles again, good eh? VIEW MY OTHER ENTRY

San ka naman nakakita ng nag rerecycle ng kandila? DITO LANG yan sa Pinas maari, siguro! Ang aking hipag ay isang mother butler sa maliit na chapel dito sa aming barangay at naghihinayang silang itapon ang mga upos ng kandila kaya't ito'y kanyang kinakalap para lutin na muli. Ito nga pala ang entry ko sa LITRATONG PINOY.

PROJECT 365: Recycled Candles at ito ang resulta, bagong kandila para gamitin muli sa simbahan.. oh d ba tipid!
