That pop can that you're drinking out of right now has probably been recycled. That beer you had at the lake over the weekend? Probably recycled too. The earth has a finite number of natural resources, and the recycling of metal goods helps turn that old aluminum can into a brand new beverage can, ready for you to enjoy. At Lakeside Auto Recyclers East, we’re happy to be doing our part, recycling scrap metal as we SHRED THE WORLD!
