Why should we recycle electronics?

The whole world is now taking steps towards plastic recycling, so much that this has now become a buzzword. However, we are still quite resistant when it comes to recycling electronics items. We can find thousands of cars and household items being stashed, but can’t find that many electronic products in Dubai scrap yards. It is noteworthy that there are several metal recycling companies in Dubai, such as Lucky group, which can buy valuable metals derived from the process of electronics recycling.

We waste a lot of energy and resources to make a new electronic product. So, recycling of electronic items can save energy as well as valuable resources. It will also significantly reduce the carbon footprint that is associated with the manufacturing process of electronic items. Moreover, recycling these products will also effectively prevent electronic wastes to go into landfills.

There are some approved recycling companies in Dubai that can effectively extract the metals from electronic items. You can also obtain commercial value by selling these valuable metals to scrap metals trading companies. Besides the financial aspect of recycling, you can also make your significant contribution to a better tomorrow by taking part in electronic recycling.

Educate viewers about waste recycling through global media

According to some researchers, it is argued that humans tend to remember visuals seen on a screen rather than the words read in a text. Have you ever wondered why is the case? Because visual media helps retain concepts and ideas. Research suggests that people learn more easily when the information is presented in a visual form.

Educating waste recycling through media sources like movies or documentaries offers both intellectual and effective experiences to live sustainable life style.

From animated short movies to a film about waste landfills, there are many documentary films that will force anyone to watch about their waste and how to make better use of it.

Like Trashed, 2012, this film concludes by highlighting zero waste initiatives around the world as well as cities pushing for mandatory recycling and composting programs.

In order to live sustainable and waste free life style there are now several metal scrap companies in Dubai operating in the Dubai scrap trading sector, who will buy those metals for the purpose of reuse which we trash into landfills or at trash drums.

Through the recycling process, we get several other valuable metals, such as Aluminum and Copper that belong to non-ferrous metal categories. Companies that buy these valuable metals, besides the stainless steel scrap in Dubai, these metals also fetch more money than the ferrous metals as they are way costlier.

Also there are many other companies available that buy ferrous scrap in Dubai which are ranked in giving high quality services to their customers in improving the environment for better living quality life.

What are the Effects of Not Recycling?

Effects of Not Recycling - LuckyGroup
As human beings we generate millions of tons of waste every day. Usually the items are made from paper, metal, glass, tires and plastics that we throw away in the garbage - everything counts as waste. However, we often do not realize that such waste items can be used as raw materials for the production of new items.  Not to mention landfills are a burden for our planet as it has environmental as well as economic impact to our society.

If we don’t recycle waste, they will pile up and accumulate and with each passing day, this will create more landfills. Some of waste disposed off can also seep into the groundwater and contaminate our drinking water along with the harmful chemicals that can also mix with environment.

To utilize valuable recyclable from landfills into the scrap recycling industry, it is very important to recycle scrap metals through which we can significantly contribute to the conservation of the earth’s natural resources and contribute significantly to the economy.

Effective recycling can also reduce the overall production of greenhouse gases. The recycling industry produces way less greenhouse gas per unit, compared to the quantity of gas emitted as a result of the manufacturing the same unit of the specific product. The reduction in greenhouse gas emission can significantly improve the negative effects caused by global warming.

We can all make a difference by recycling all that we can.  So, what are you going to recycle next?

How does Metallic Appliances be Useful for the Recycling Industry?

From microwaves to dishwashers and even air conditioners - we often throw away once the appliances starts to perform poorly or when the maintenance cost is high.  However, it is not a wise decision to dispose-off into garbage, instead we can recycle these devices properly. In several Dubai Scrap Yards, we usually see heaps of rejected apparatuses. It is worth to recycle those devices with approved electronic waste recyclers and then sell those metals to Aluminum Alloy Manufacturers in Dubai.

Proper sorting of scrap metals from those appliances can extract precious metals like copper and aluminium that can easily be sale to recycling industries. Several recycling companies, like Lucky Group, also purchase those scrap metals at a good prices.

After receiving the old appliances, the recycling companies first sort the similar type of material and remove different components from the appliances. Then, they sort the same according to the different types of metal and its grading.  Once the whole cycle is complete, then they sale those to the business houses dealing with metal products.

Precautions should be taken before removing or disposing of any hazardous part. This is because proper dismantling of old appliances requires not only experienced hands but also proper understanding of the parts.  So, it’s always advisable not to do the recycling job yourself. There are several companies available all over Dubai that will help you with the recycling process of your old appliances. They not only effectively recycle the appliances but also take care of the environmental factors.
