LAS VEGAS, April 22, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- AAEQ Manufacturers and Recyclers, one of Nevada's leading scrap metal recycling companies, has announced its support for "Don't Trash Nevada," a new program to help educate the public about the importance of keeping the desert clean.

"AAEQ endorses all initiatives by state and federal officials to curb illegal dumping in the desert," said Scott Stolberg, president & CEO, AAEQ. "Having a clean environment is a benefit to all citizens. In addition, we are pleased to celebrate Earth Day by making our new guide to recycling scrap metal available to business owners and consumers. "

AAEQ's " Guide to Recycling Scrap Material " provides guidance on what materials can and cannot be recycled. Scrap metal can be an eyesore or it can be cash in your pocket. The guide point outs that metal recyclers will typically accept both ferrous and non-ferrous metal, and pay a competitive price for the material.

The Guide To Recycling Scrap Metal, includes the following discussions: 1) Ferrous Metals and Non-Ferrous, What's the Difference?; 2) Common Sources of Recycled Metals; 3) Can Automobiles be Recycled?; and 4) How Does Recycling Metal Help the Environment?

"Nevada's desert and cityscapes are littered with scrap metal that can be recycled in exchange for monetary compensation," explained Stolberg. "This Earth Day, take the time to clean up Nevada and raise money for your business, civic organization, club or church."

In addition to buying materials in the metro area, AAEQ has buyers available within a 200 mile radius to purchase materials. AAEQ purchases aluminum, brass, cast iron, copper or stainless steel scrap metal. In addition, they will also purchase engines, transmissions, wheels (steel and aluminum) or radiators as well as whole vehicles or construction equipment, running or not. AAEQ can also properly recycle cardboard and aluminum cans. With qualified orders, AAEQ will pick up these materials at a business location, pay the owner for them and haul them away.
