A lot of scrap metal can be reused in construction, manufacturing, furniture, as well as in order to produce new, stronger metals. By properly disposing of your aluminium, copper, brass, steel, iron, etc., you can help create new metal objects at a lower cost.
Mining new metals from the Earth’s crust is a very invasive, costly, and time-consuming process. This, combined with the fact that metals are a finite resources, suggests that by recycling old metals, not only can everyone save a lot of money, but we can also waste less precious materials, resulting in more sustainable living all around.
As a general rule, all ferrous metals, such as engineering grade carbon steels and other types of steel, can be recycled.
