Greg Brown, CEO of Raleigh Metal Recycling & Goldsboro Metal Recycling announced today that effective immediately all employees will receive a $50.00 a month bonus every month to help pay for a tank of gas, due to record high prices at the pump.

"Our employees are being hurt by this terrible drain on our economy and we felt the right thing to do was to help out,"Brown said. "At the same time we all need to use energy more efficiently, so we gave all our associates a Gasoline/Diesel Fuel Saving Tips sheet to help use fuel more wisely."

Raleigh Metal Recycling and Goldsboro Metal Recycling, recycle most types of metals, including Steel, Copper, Aluminum, Brass, etc. Buying from industrial and manufacturing companies as well as from the public, metal is processed and shipped to locations in the U.S., China and Korea. "Our business is all about recycling which uses energy more wisely," Brown said. "We buy used aluminum cans and old aluminum window frames, which are melted down to make new cans and new frames, saving 95% of the energy vs. making aluminum from mined bauxite. We also buy old motors and extension cords, which are melted down to make new copper, saving 85% of the energy used to make new copper vs. making copper from mined copper powder."

Calvin Finley, General Manager of Raleigh Metal Recycling said, "With our business all about recycling, which saves energy, we felt that we should not only help our teams with money to help pay for gas, but make them aware of techniques they can use to save gas in their own vehicles and save fuel when operating our trucks and cranes".

Neil Sevier, General Manager of Goldsboro Metal Recycling added, "We are seeing a good increase in people bringing us appliances, old bicycles and dead lead acid car batteries, which has been increasing our business. We felt that this would be a good time to share some of this increased business with our associates".

"High energy prices are raising the costs of all types of metals, meaning we literally pay cash for your metal trash," Brown said. "We are seeing more and more people bringing us their metal trash, which in these tough times they are using to help pay for their own gas bills and even food bills. Our facilities have been rebuilt, so we can now get people in and out quickly with their money, which we even pay out by ATM for speed and accuracy."
