    Recycling metals is important for both the environment and for industries. PTR has lead the way by helping our clients get their recycling programs up and running with either new Vertical Balers or rebuilt Vertical Balers. By recycling, our clients turn what once was trash into a valuable recycling commodity. Now more than ever, with supply chain issues and shortages, recycling plays a key role.

    Recycling scrap metals like stainless steel, copper, iron, and aluminum is a great way to both help the environment, industry, and your bottom line. There are a growing number of end uses for recycled metals and the demand continues to grow. In addition, all commodities are going up in price and that trend looks to be in place for a couple years.

    Straits Research predicts the Compound Annual Growth Rate for the metals recycling market is 5.85% and that the market will reach $384 Billion by 2030. Check out their in depth analysis here .
