Metal Recycling in Houston Matters

Why recycle?

Recycling of paper and glass1 is a common practice in the city, and it makes people feel good and motivated to know that their small contribution is ending waste on harder to come by materials. However, many don't know of the possibilities when it comes to metal recycling in Houston and the metropolitan area. People often place it with the rest of their normal trash.

Thrown away scrap metals increase the need for mining raw materials, add to greenhouse gas emissions through energy waste, and deplete finite natural resources. Instead of heading to a landfill, just one trip turns these metals back into a usable material, and cash in your pocket.

SPO Recycling Center recycles all non-ferrous and ferrous metals, making it one of the most integrated recycling providers for most discarded scrap including aluminum, copper, stainless steel, brass, and electronics.

1. Although we do not recycle paper and glass, we acknowledge that it's a common practice in the city and would like to share that paper and glass can be easily recycled in the Greater Houston area with the COH Neighborhood Depository Recycling Centers or the Westpark Consumer Recycling Center. Texas is not a depository state, therefore no one gets paid for plastic bottles.
