Recycling to preserve our Natural Resources
Raw Materials Company has been actively recycling for many years. Long before "recycling" became popular. RMC has been recycling obsolete secondary materials, for reuse in the marketplace. The list includes most metals, such as lead, mercury, copper, aluminum, nickel alloys, iron, tin, bronze, brass and steel. Since 1985, in excess of 2.2 billion pounds of material has been recycled. This includes approximately 100 million pounds of waste batteries, fluorescent lamps and electronic wastes.
We at RMC continue to work toward a future of responsible recycling, resulting in a cleaner environment, through energy conservation and the preservation of our natural resources. Metal is infinitely recyclable. Metal found in the varoius battery types such as lead, nickel, zinc, cadmium and mercury can be recycled and reused over and over again. Diverting these materials from disposal not only preserves our natural resources, but also protects our environment and ground water from heavy metals such as lead, mercury and cadmium.
