USA Recycling Industries, Inc. (USRI) Suggests Ideal Recycling Business Model

Friday, August 31st, 2012

Arguably the biggest challenge with recycling is getting people to do it. With the world’s population now exceeding 7 billion, the amount of material goods produced each day (and associated waste) is at an all-time high. Recycling, even at its best, is not the full answer. Ultimately there will have to be modifications in how things are produced and consumed. Indeed the risk is that people will assume basic recycling efforts are all that is necessary, avoiding more comprehensive solutions. Nevertheless, there are few who doubt a valuable role for recycling in the efficient use of world resources. But even the most basic recycling efforts are wasted if the population doesn’t participate.

Think of how many residential recycling containers are underutilized, or not used at all, simply because it’s left up to the individual consumer to go through the process of separation and disposal. If the person is in a hurry, or uncertain about what goes where, or just lazy, the job doesn’t get done. Comprehensive implementation has always been the gravel in the gears of most well-intended recycling initiatives.

The beauty of the USA Recycling Industries business model is that it makes citizen participation in recycling completely painless and virtually invisible. That’s because the company works primarily with the huge automotive aftermarket service industry, collecting the mountain of used tires, batteries, oil filters, lubricants, metals, and other scrap materials, and seeing that they are all recycled and not dumped in the nation’s landfills. And yet it’s essentially imperceptible to the service center’s customers. To the average car owner, it’s simply a matter of taking their car in for normal servicing, something they’ve always done and will continue to do. They have no idea that they are an integral part of an impressive recycling program.

USA Recycling operates through carefully designed partnerships to provide nationwide service, making recycling easy and efficient for auto service centers, but even easier for the countless consumers that help clean up America without even knowing it.

USA Recycling Industries, Inc. (USRI) Does More for the Environment than the Electric Car

Monday, August 27th, 2012

With today’s talk about the potential of the electric car, and the development of advanced battery technology, it’s easy to forget that the biggest green impact in the world of automotive batteries is the recycling of old-technology lead-acid batteries. As the name suggests, traditional batteries are full of lead and acid, both of which are deadly to the environment, making the recycling of car batteries a critical part of the environmental movement. Considering the roughly 100 million batteries replaced annually in the U.S., the importance of battery recycling is clear. In fact, according to the EPA, such batteries are the single most recycled product in the world.

USA Recycling Industries, a Pennsylvania based national recycling company, is focused on the automotive aftermarket services industry, making the recycling of car batteries a top priority. The company acts as a critical link between automotive service centers and destination recyclers. The company provides collection of used batteries and transportation to an approved battery production manufacturer for recycling purposes. Batteries are collected, purchase by the unit or pound, then sold to battery manufacturers who use the recycled materials to produce new auto batteries. As a result, they don’t end up in landfills, which fits the company’s mission statement of ensuring that America’s landfills remain debris-free of its collected materials.

It doesn’t stop there. USA Recycling collects used tires, motor oil and oil filters, lubricants, and all types of automotive related scrap metal, playing an increasingly important role in the nation’s overall automotive recycling industry. Through a series or partnerships, the company serves automotive aftermarket centers across the country, economically capturing materials that would otherwise end up in landfills, oceans, or the atmosphere, while providing investors a way of profiting from the expanding international green movement.

USA Recycling Industries, Inc. (USRI) Sees Used Tires and Other Scrap Material as a Mission

Friday, August 17th, 2012

With what is estimated to be well over 200 million vehicles on the road in the U.S. alone, one can imagine the volume of tires being replaced on an annual basis. Hundreds of millions of tires are scrapped every year in the U.S., and, in spite of private and governmental efforts, millions of them still end up in landfills. And that’s a problem, because tires are designed to be tough and long lasting, not easily broken down, plus they capture empty space, increasing their discard volume.

It’s a special tragedy, since tires can now be recycled into many things, including various forms of asphalt for roadways, aggregate for concrete, flooring and roofing materials, and many other applications. The number of uses continues to grow as new technologies are applied, such as the processing of tires into fuels. A solid market now exists for the vast majority of scrap tires being generated.

Most individuals, and most companies, don’t have the time or contacts to search out and work with the many tire reprocessors that have been established around the country, which is where USA Recycling Industries plays one of its major roles. The Pennsylvania based company acts as a critical link between automotive aftermarket centers around the country and end recycling processors. With its contacts to key players both in and outside of the U.S., the company has prevented countless tires from ending up in landfills, or otherwise hurting the environment.

In addition, USA Recycling supports the recycling of more than just tires. The company handles scrap metal, used motor oil and lubricants, batteries, oil filters, and various other products of the automotive aftermarket industry. Keeping these and other damaging items out of landfills is the central point of their mission statement.

USA Recycling Industries, Inc. (USRI) Hopes to Benefit from Future Huge Increases in Trash

Friday, July 27th, 2012

USA Recycling Industries is a Pennsylvania-based scrap metals recycler providing specialty recycling services throughout North America. More specifically, the company is involved in the business of collecting recyclable waste materials and providing disposal services to the automotive service center industry. It is considered to be a leader in this sector, offering disposal of batteries, oil and lubricants, oil filters, tires, scrap metals, etc.

The company targets the rapidly growing global solid waste market. This strategy makes sense in the light of another recent report which highlighted the projected increase in the amount of municipal solid waste generated around the world. Research by the Worldwatch Institute says that municipal solid waste will double from 1.3 billion tons per year to 2.6 billion tons by the middle of the next decade thanks to increased prosperity and urbanization globally.

This report from the Worldwatch Institute comes less than two months after the well-respected World Bank issued its own findings on the subject. Its findings showed that municipal solid waste would increase from what it said was 1.43 billion tons per year to 2.42 billion tons by 2025. Bottom line – solid municipal waste is already a problem and will only grow worse in the years ahead.

USA Recycling has been in business since 2000 and believes it offers a solution to address part of this massive global problem. With its well-established footprint already in place, the company now is integrating other services such as the collection and disposal of other recyclable waste streams. For additional information about USA Recycling Industries, the services it offers, and how it plans to profit from the growth in waste, please visit the company’s website at www.usarecyclingindustriesinc.com.

USA Recycling Industries (USRI) and Landfills

Monday, July 23rd, 2012

Recycling is a popular catch-word, but how many people know what it really represents. Of the hundreds of millions of tons of non-industrial waste that is generated in the U.S. every year, roughly a third is recycled. The rest is disposed of in traditional ways, usually in landfills or by burning. Over and above the fact that people don’t want to raise their families by a landfill, there are significant environmental concerns associated with the dumping of waste.

One of concerns regarding landfills is the organic matter dumped in unmanaged landfills and left to rot. One of the results of rotting organic matter is methane, a powerful greenhouse gas almost 20 times more effective than carbon dioxide at trapping heat from the sun. Another concern is the uncontrolled blending of industrial and home chemicals in landfills that can produce toxic emissions, dangerous to people and animals in the area. Dust and other contaminants are also generated as building materials are dumped. Dangerous chemicals from the growing disposal of consumer electronics are yet another concern, especially if they are allowed to eventually work their way into the water supply.

USA Recycling Industries, a recyclable waste collection and disposal company, handles a huge amount of waste products every day, servicing automotive aftermarket centers around the country. They have to deal with old batteries, old tires, scrap metal, oil and lubricants, and just about anything that involves automotive consumables. Yet, with all that diversity, the company has managed to hold true to its mission statement, ensuring that America’s landfills remain debris-free of its collected materials.

The company sends collected and sorted scrap metal to steel mills, foundries, and smelters, which use it to produce new metal products. Used motor oil is sent to re-refining centers to be processed into new oil. Used tires and batteries are sent to recycling facilities to make new rubber and battery products.

USA Recycling Industries, Inc. (USRI) Plays Growing Role in America’s Recycling Industry

Monday, July 16th, 2012

Although the idea of recycling is nothing new, few people realize the scope or growth of the modern recycling industry, or the size of its potential. Modern recycling is relatively young, with only a few decades under its belt. Nevertheless, nearly one third of all solid waste generated is now estimated to be recycled in one form or another. This is a remarkable figure considering the immensity of waste material produced on a daily basis in industrialized nations like the U.S.

According to the EPA, Americans, separate from industrial waste, generate roughly 250 million tons of trash each year, a figure that has understandably been on the rise as the population increases, although the per capita generation of waste has leveled off, and even slightly decreased. The EPA says that, nationally, we now recycle and compost just over 85 million tons of such solid waste, providing an annual benefit of more than 186 million metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent emissions reduced, comparable to the annual greenhouse gas emissions from over 36 million passenger vehicles. In addition, they indicate that recycling and composting more than 85 million tons of such material has resulted in the saving of more than 1.3 quadrillion Btu of energy, the equivalent of over 229 million barrels of oil. So recycling is now a big and very serious business, increasingly seen as critical to achieving the world’s environmental goals.

USA Recycling is fast becoming a lead player in American recycling by providing a growing network of recyclable waste collection and disposal service centers. These centers are currently focused on serving the automotive aftermarket industry, where they collect scrap metal, used tires and batteries, and even used motor oil and lubricants, from automotive service centers around the country. The material is then sent to steel mills, re-refining centers, and other operations where it can be safely processed to stay out of America’s landfills.

USA Recycling Industries, Inc. (USRI) Tackles Waste Material to Help Environment

Monday, July 9th, 2012

USA Recycling Industries, established in 2000, has spent the last 12 years collecting, recycling, and disposing of waste materials for the automotive service center industry. A holding company operating through many company-owned specialty recycling centers, USRI eliminates the burden of getting rid of waste materials such as tires, oil filters, scrap metal, batteries, and much more.

USRI has a simple business model; the company buys waste material from auto service centers and resells it to companies who can treat the materials in an environmentally friendly way, giving the products a second life and destination beyond a landfill. USRI’s portfolio of services includes removal and recycling of the following products:

• Scrap metal: USRI’s recycling centers purchase scrap metal, sort it, and then resell it to an end-user consumer such as a steel mill, foundry, or smelter. These companies then turn the scrap into new metal products;

• Tires: USRI purchases used tires in accordance with all applicable laws and disposes of them to tire recycling facilities, who then create new rubber products;

• Used motor oil: via a vendor partnership with Heritage-Crystal Clean, LLC (NASDAQ: HCCI), USRI collects used motor oil by the gallon and sells to motor oil re-refinery operations who give it a second-life as a new oil product;

• Lubricants: as with the used motor oil services, USRI operates through Heritage-Crystal Clean, LLC to turn waste lubricants into something useful and non-hazardous to the environment;

• Oil filters: a waste material with huge recycling potential, used oil filter numbers in the United States reach 425 million each year. USRI is committed to recycling these filters in an effort to recover as much reusable scrap metal as possible.

• Batteries: USRI also purchases used auto batteries by the pound, and then resells to battery manufacturers who turn them into new auto batteries. Consumers purchase about 3 billion auto batteries per year, and USRI’s recycling efforts keep the toxic wastes associated with them out of the landfills and our environment.

The company also provides export trading and fuel oil delivery services. Currently, all collected recyclable waste materials are sold to end-user-consumers through the USRI’s export trading operations in North America, India, and the United Arab Emirates.

USA Recycling Industries, Inc. (USRI) Signs Oil Filter Collection and Disposal Services Agreement

Wednesday, June 13th, 2012

USA Recycling Industries, a Pennsylvania-based scrap metals recycler providing specialty recycling services throughout North America, announced after the closing bell today that Redwood Recycling of Staten Island, N.Y., is now offering oil filter disposal services to its significant customer base in the New York Metropolitan and surrounding areas via USRI’s oil filter disposal process. Where previously there was no market for oil filter disposal in that area, Redwood Recycling can now offer a market to its customers for the recycling of oil and steel byproducts.

“We are very excited to offer our oil filter disposal services to Redwood Recycling’s New York customers,” stated USA Recycling Industries CEO Vincent J. Smith. “This will create a significant value for used oil filter generators where previously that did not occur.”

“Redwood Recycling has serviced the scrap metal industry in New York for more than a decade and services the largest market in the continental United States: the New York Metropolitan and surrounding areas,” Smith added. “We are pleased to work with a company that has such an outstanding history, and we look forward to aiding them in providing their customers with a vital recycling service not previously available.”

With more than 10.8 million registered vehicles in the state of New York, Redwood Recycling will be able to add significant revenue to its operations by implementing USRI’s oil filter disposal process. Recycling all the filters sold in the U.S. each year would result in the recovery of approximately 160,000 tons of steel alone. Offering this recycling service in the New York Metropolitan and surrounding areas (the largest market in the continental U.S.) is a significant stride forward in reclaiming valuable resources and deploying USRI’s oil filter disposal process throughout the country.

USA Recycling Industries, Inc. (USRI) Positioned for Further Growth

Tuesday, June 12th, 2012

USA Recycling Industries, founded in 2000, operates through several company-owned specialty recycling centers as an intermediary service provider within the automotive service center industry. In that configuration, it delivers specialty recycling advantages to the more than 5,000 auto service centers in its network – some of them major players in the retail auto parts trade.

Among other things, these liaisons position USA Recycling, through its subsidiary Scrap USA, to capture significant revenue from the $75-billion global scrap metals market. Given that scrap metal is a direct input to steel production, providing up to 50 percent of the raw material needed to make steel, it only makes sense that the almost 130 million long tons of global scrap metal production contribute to a reduction in energy consumption when compared to mining iron ore and heating/separating it in a foundry. This, as a result, makes scrap metal recycling even more environmentally friendly than some people realize.

USRI’s operations – through diversification via its multiple subsidiaries as well as partnerships – are able to capture a generous share of the scrap metal market. This allows the company to branch out into other recyclable waste streams, or to create the sorts of franchising opportunities and revenue-sharing agreements like the one it recently arranged with Recycling Franchisors, Inc.

Other initiatives aimed at placing USRI on an equal footing equal with other major U.S. scrap recyclers include launching a new and highly informative website, and a change of address for the company’s executive offices. Those efforts, placed alongside USRI’s 2011 acquisition of Scrap USA (which had been successfully operating in the automotive service center industry since 2007), and a name change to better reflect the company’s operations and business model, place USRI in an enviable position within the U.S. recycling industry.

USA Recycling Industries’ reputation, for providing only top-drawer waste collection and removal, and insuring that said waste will not impact any operating U.S. landfills, is yet another way in which the company stands head and shoulders above run-of-the-mill recyclers who have given the industry such a bad name. For USRI, its commitment to repurpose and sell all recyclable materials to end users through its sales offices in North America, India and the United Arab Emirates, represents a very “green” effort to capitalize on a “cradle-to-cradle” life-cycle assessment.

USA Recycling, operating as a collection and recycling firm, handles not only scrap metal but (automotive) oil filters, used motor oil and other vehicle lubricants, used tires, used batteries, and other automotive waste-related disposal and repurposing activities. It also provides 48-hour turnarounds, certified weight tickets on surrendered items, warehouse scrap processing which follows all applicable laws and regulations, and provides these services free to businesses needing one container changeout each month. In addition, USRI commonly pays within 30 days, providing the needed documentation with each check.

Operating in 40 U.S. states, with export trading operations in North America, India, and the United Arab Emirates, USRI is part of a growing national movement aimed at resource reclamation and recycling to preserve and extend the life of such natural resources as iron ore, copper, aluminum, lead, zinc, and stainless steel.

According to a 2011 U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) report, this scrap metal resource protection leads to a 75-percent savings in energy, a 90-percent savings in raw materials needed, an 86-percent reduction in air pollution, a 40-percent reduction in water use and a 76-percent reduction in water pollution, as well as a 97-percent reduction in mining wastes, many of which – piled around the countryside – lead to groundwater pollution and a lack of potable water in mining regions. In addition, the EPA notes, every tonne of new steel made from scrap saves 2,458 pounds of iron ore, 1,377 pounds of coal and more than 116 pounds of limestone. And, while none of these is a rare mineral, their extraction almost always leads to despoliation of the ecosphere.

Equally as important, in terms of the ecosphere, are the 300 million scrap tires abandoned in the U.S. each year. Formerly these tires, when worn beyond the tread, were not good for much beyond garden rounds and tire swings (or as garage-door bumpers in a pinch), and were thrown alongside the highway, discarded in abandoned lots, or dumped in lakes. Thanks to enterprises like USRI, which has made a commitment to reduce, reuse, and recycle, in 2010 this nation recycled one billion pounds of crumb rubber generated from the approximately 300 million tires discarded, and used much of this in rubberized asphalt, which made American roads safer, smoother, and quieter; rubberized asphalt has been shown to reduce road noise by up to 4 decibels.

With its commitment to maximize shareholder value while simultaneously providing a waste collection stream that spares landfills and ensures that today’s automotive materials – from metal to tires to batteries to lubricants – will not become tomorrow’s ecological nightmares, USRI stands poised to deliver value across the entire spectrum of American life.

USA Recycling Industries, Inc. (USRI) Inks LOI to Expand Used Oil Filter Recycling Operations

Wednesday, June 6th, 2012

USA Recycling Industries, a Pennsylvania-based scrap metals recycler providing specialty recycling services throughout North America, this morning announced it has signed a letter of intent (LOI) to purchase 51% of the stock of Lucas Lane, Inc., a Pennsylvania-based recycler of used oil filters.

Each year the U.S. generates 425 million used automotive oil filters containing 160,000 tons of iron units and 18 million gallons of oil. Recycling all the filters sold annually in the United States would result in the recovery of about 160,000 tons of steel. Given the potential market opportunity, the LOI with Lucas Oil provides for a strategic bolt-on acquisition and new opportunities for growth.

“Based on the number of oil filters used every year in this country, we believe that the addition of the collection and disposal of used oil filters is a lucrative opportunity that will add significant revenue to the Company’s operations in the near term,” USA Recycling Industries CEO Vincent J. Smith stated. “The Lucas Lane LOI, combined with our direct end-user-consumer relationships with used motor oil re-refiners, solidifies our competitive advantage.”
