Why Metal Recycling?
Metal Recycling has become increasingly important to the environment as well as industries. The needs for reducing costs, improving management of resources, and reducing waste are met with recycled materials such as metal. Recycling Metal is very effective as metal can be recycled over and over again without having its properties altered. Common recyclable metals include aluminum, steel, silver, copper, brass, and gold. Aluminum and steel are by far the most common metals as they are the most used and thrown out metals.
Benefits of Metal Recycling to You

Benefits to the Environment
- Reducing pollution from landfills and the need for power-hungry ore smelting.
When thrown out, metal just rots in landfills and creates greenhouse gasses. Mining and smelting ore produces pollutants to the environment, recycling metals reduce the demand and therefore the amount of pollution these processes bring.
- Provides energy conversation.
Recycling Metals is less energy-intensive than mining and smelting ore. Metal Recycling also lowers the needs for mining and ore processing.
- Lowering demand for ore mining.
Metal recycling reduces the need for mining, which can be very destructive to the habitat and environment. It is also much more cost-effective to re-use metal than to mine and prepare ore.
