- What is scrap metal recycling?
Scrap metal recycling is the intentional collection of metal byproduct, used or unused with the aim of converting it into usable form again. Transforming scrap metal into a saleable or usable product entails melting the metal or metals in furnaces fired to high temperatures. Recycled scrap is a leading raw material component for about 70 per cent of steel made in continental United States and this figure is similar to the amount of scrap metal recycled and processed in Europe, Australia and Asia.
- Why is scrap metal recycling great for the environment?
Scrap metal recycling help keep the world’s air and water cleaner by removing potentially hazardous material, keeping them out of landfills and converting these expensive resources into usable form once more, lessening the pressure on the mines of the world to produce more.
- When did scrap metal recycling start?
Scrap metal recycling has been around for ages. It has existed since the discovery of metal, when primitive smiths re-melted iron ingots and filings to be used to make other items. These were the first scraps, or unused metals scraps. History is rife with instances when kings and military leaders “repurposed” metals vessels used for worship activities to shields, emblems or weapons of war.
