Wheel Repair vs. Wheel Replacement
In most cases, if your alloy wheel is damaged or bent you do not have to spend hundreds, or sometimes thousands of dollars, by having your wheel replaced. Not only does wheel repair save you money, it also saves on energy! Check out some interesting facts below.
- Each aluminum can recycled saves enough electricity to light a 100-watt bulb for 20 hours (Ref: Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality)
- For each pound of aluminum recovered, Americans save the energy resources needed to generate about 7.5 kilowatt-hours of electricity. That’s enough energy saved each year by recycling aluminum to meet the lighting needs of a city the size of Pittsburgh, PA for six years! (Ref: Can Manufacturers Institute)
- Recycling 1 ton of aluminum saves the equivalent in energy of 2,350 gallons of gasoline. This is equivalent to the amount of electricity used by the typical home over a period of 10 years. (Ref: Can Manufacturers Institute)
