Excessive mining has a negative impact on the ecosystem. In addition, as access to raw metal sources grows limited, more energy and resources are consumed in the mining process. Recycling is a far more effective technique of obtaining metals for use in manufacturing. It consumes less energy and conserves natural resources than obtaining fresh metal. It also aids in the reduction of waste sent to landfills. To keep the earth green, keep this metal out of landfills and have it taken away for recycling.
