Metal recycling is the processing of reusing old metal materials, mainly aluminum and steel to make new products. Metal recycling uses 95 percent less energy than manufacturing with new materials.
Aluminum is good for recycling because it can be melted and shaped into new products. Almost all aluminum and steel can be recycled endlessly without compromising the materials. Products most often recyclable include: soda cans, appliances, automotive parts, windows, doors, tin cans, bridge parts, old buildings.
It behooves Americans to recycle their metals for a variety of reasons. Not only is it environmentally appreciated and advocated because it reduces green house gas emissions, but it can be profitable. Scrap metal recycling companies will pay for aluminum and metals. These companies pay because aluminum and steel scan be recycled endlessly creating less land, water, and air pollution.
