Use of steel walls—like our self-storage business—benefits the environment in many ways. Most cars and appliances are converted to scrap then recycled into new products instead of being added to our landfills. A typical car contains about a ton of steel, and every ton recycled saves 2,500 pounds of iron ore, 1,400 pounds of coal, and 120 pounds of limestone. Another way to see the environmental value of our self-storage business is to consider this… it takes an entire tree to make a telephone pole, however, the steel from one car can produce six or more steel poles.
In short, our public self-storage units contribute to a clean environment—while providing you a safe, temporary home for your belongings.
