                                          Recycling facts:

                                          More than 20 million Hershey's Kisses are wrapped each
                                          day, using 133 square miles of aluminum foil. Believe it
                                          or not, ALL that foil is recyclable, but not many people
                                                    realize it so most it goes in the trash!

                                          Recycling one aluminum can saves enough energy to run
                                           a TV for three hours. In spite of this, Americans throw
                                          away enough aluminum to rebuild our entire commercial
                                                   fleet of airplanes every three months!

The recycling rate for steel in the United States increased to 63 percent in 2005, the highest rate ever recorded and making steel the world's most recycled
packing material.
Steel is North America's Number #1 Recycled Material. Each year, more steel is recycled than aluminum, paper, glass and plastic combined.
Americans throw away enough aluminum to rebuild our entire commercial fleet of airplanes every 3 months.
Recycling creates 6 times as many jobs as landfilling.
Recycling just one aluminum can saves enough energy to operate a TV for 3 hours or a 100 watt light bulb for 5 hours. The energy saved each year by recycling
steel is equal to the electrical power used by 18 million homes each year - or enough to sustain the residents of Los Angeles for eight years. Every ton of steel
recycled conserves 2,500 pounds of iron ore,1,400 pounds of coal and 120 pounds of limestone.
Production of one ton of new aluminum ingot requires 4-5 tons of bauxite ore.
The energy needed to replace all the aluminum cans wasted each year is equivalent to 16 million barrels of oil--enough to keep a million cars on the road for a
There are over 13,000 aluminum cans recycled in California every minute.
In the past 50 years, approximately half of the steel produced in this country has been recycled through the steelmaking process.
Nearly 1.4 million tons of steel cans were recycled back into various steel products in 2005.
There are over 2.5 billion cans recycled in the UK each year. Placed end to-end, these recycled cans would stretch three quarters of the way round the Earth.
It requires only 5% of the energy to make a can out of recycled aluminum that it does with virgin ore.
Every day, Americans use enough steel and tin cans to make a steel pipe running from Los Angeles to New York and back.
For every six aluminum cans we don't recycle, we waste the equivalent of one aluminum can full of gasoline.

It takes the same amount of energy to make 20 cans with recycled aluminum as it does to make one new from scratch.               RECYCLING
        The benefits of recycling make good sense. The benefits of recycling responsibly make even better sense
        - for us, our suppliers, our consumers, and our communities. Alter Metal Recycling has - for well over a
        century - maintained a commitment to quality, integrity, and responsibility, with a vision to lead the industry
        in these commitments. In lockstep with this goal is a commitment at all levels of our company to protecting
        the environment. We understand that managing our operations' environmental aspects is essential for
        continued success, especially as our company experiences rapid growth and enters new markets and

        Alter is committed to operating its recycling facilities in an environmentally responsible manner. In keeping
        with this commitment, it is Alter's policy to:

            Establish and maintain an environmental management system (EMS) for all of its recycling facilities
            Ensure that its EMS remains appropriate for the environmental issues associated with its facilities
       Encourage environmental awareness on the part of its personnel through ongoing employee training
       Monitor regulatory compliance status at each recycling facility, and take action as necessary to ensure that compliance
        is maintained
       Establish reasonable, achievable, and economically viable objectives and targets for environmental performance as
        part of our business planning process
       Prevent or minimize environmental pollution attributable to its operations through the use of Best Management
       Seek to continually improve our environmental practices.

    This policy shall be periodically evaluated for its suitability, appropriateness and shall be communicated to
    all personnel. It shall be made available to interested parties in response to specific requests for
    information, or as may otherwise be directed by management.

    Scrap metal products like wire and cable, aluminum conduit, cable tray, copper pipe, and even switchgear
    are normal by-products of electrical contracting jobs. But many contractors don’t know how recycling these
    materials can add to the profitability of their jobs. The way to get top dollar for your scrap is knowing the
    best way to to collect and sort the material. Scrap material is normally classified as either ferrous or
    nonferrous. The ferrous, or magnetic, materials are steel items. The nonferrous materials include stainless
    steel, brass, aluminum, and copper. But just gathering your jobsite refuse and taking it to the scrap yard
    isn't enough. Here’s how to maximize your revenue.


    Separating high-voltage electrical cable from low-voltage communications wire allows your scrap dealer to
    weigh and grade each type of wire based on its copper or aluminum content. Keeping them separate takes
    the guesswork out of measuring the exact weight of each type of conductor. Also, separate aluminum and
    copper wire for processing.


    Stripping insulation by hand can lead to injury and doesn’t add to the value of the wire. Pricing is based on
    specific formulas for each type of wire. The insulation will be removed later by high-speed wire-chopping
    machines. You can even leave the wire on its spool because the machine will also separate the wood
    content from the wire. Never burn wire to remove its insulation — it is not necessary and you could be
    fined by the EPA.


    The highest valued insulated wire is #1 copper wire with has no other metallic contaminants. The next best
    is #2 copper wire, which contains contaminants such as brass connectors, solder and plating. Connectors,
    end fittings and plated or lead items are worth much less than copper, so you should remove the non-
    copper items if possible. By removing these contaminants ahead of time, you can raise your scrap material
    from a #2 grade to a #1 grade and get more money from your scrap.


    Alter uses an independent firm to regularly calibrate our scales and provide certifications. Be wary of
    portable scales. They do not travel well. Inaccurate scales can severely reduce the value of your scrap.


    Wire and cable can be extremely heavy. If you can't safely haul the material to the scrap yard in your truck,
    ask us about our container service and use our pick-up service to transport your items instead.


    Other material found on jobsites, such as aluminum conduit, cable trays, copper pipe, brass fixtures,
    control centers, and switchgear can be of significant value.

    Develop a relationship with a dealer who has a good reputation, is well established in the community, and
    is the most qualified to process your specific scrap. Alter Metal Recycling has been doing business for 110
    years and we’re known for our honesty and integrity. The value of scrap metal can change daily due to
    market price fluctuations. So, be wary of scrap dealers that offer prices that seem out of the norm.


    Your time is valuable and better spent on the job. Scrap recycling centers are often dirty, crowded, and
    hazardous work environments that present several opportunities for flat tires and other vehicle damage
    that can cut into your bottom line. Alter prides itself on our clean yards and concrete drives. Plus, we are
    set up to help contractors get in and out fast.

    Scrap metal left over at construction or renovation sites is often discarded, but it is actually a valuable
    commodity that can be recycled and used in many new ways. When looked on as waste, disposal of these
    materials is often viewed as the cost of doing business. But recycling scrap metal can have a big impact
    on the environment and even your profitability.


    Recycling materials generated at a construction site is increasingly important. Besides environmental
    benefits, recycling can have economic benefits for your business. Alter Metal Recycling pays top dollar for
    all ferrous and non-ferrous scrap metal including aluminum siding, electrical wire, copper pipe, flashing
    and other scrap metal generally leftover during the building and construction process. Additionally,
    recycling material onsite can reduce your material hauling and disposal costs.


    Call your nearest Alter Metal Recycling Center to see if you qualify for our free bin service. Depending on
    the amount of scrap metal you generate, Alter will place a bin and provide prompt pickup, disposal and
    return to your site. We will credit your account automatically. All you have to do is fill the bins.


    An important first step in integrating recycling into your construction operation is establishing a relationship
    with a local recycling company. Alter Metal Recycling has been a leader in the metal recycling business for
    over 100 years. We’re fair and honest. We offer clean yards, and we’re pretty nice people. More
    importantly, we care about you and your business, and we will make sure you’re always satisfied.


    Green building certification grants points based on how much you recycle. Implementing a tracking system
    will aid you in attaining LEED points for recycling. Alter can provide reports of the amount of material that
    is being disposed and recycled from your construction sites. That way, you can better determine how you
    can increase the amount of material being recycled from your sites.

    Materials theft has become an overwhelming problem across the country. Its impact on the scrap recycling
    industry is significant. Recyclers have become both the victims of theft and the target for legislative efforts
    to solve the theft problem.

    As a member of ISRI (Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries, Inc.), Alter Metal Recycling is working
    earnestly toward minimizing our risk of purchasing stolen scrap metal and we support industry-wide
    attempts to stem the tide of material theft.

    That’s why all Alter locations use video surveillance to record illegal activity and aid law enforcement
    officials in their efforts to catch thieves. We also participate in industry-wide web alert systems for stolen
    material, and comply with all state regulations and local ordinances aimed at theft prevention.
                                 This document outlines materials that are not accepted at Alter facilities and materials that may be

                                 sense and best judgment will be used to determine which materials can be managed in a safe and
                                 responsible manner that minimizes risk and potential liabilities for all parties. Special situations or
                                 requests for deviations are to be discussed and cleared with your account executive prior to
