The recycling process releases less carbon dioxide and other dangerous gasses than the processing of raw materials. Furthermore, it saves money and allows manufacturing companies to decrease their production price.

Here are a few facts to think about when considering recycling your New Orleans Scrap Metal:

  • In the United States alone, around 100 million steel and tin cans are used every day.
  • Steel and iron are the most recycled materials in the world due in part to the opportunity to recover large structures as well as the ease of reprocessing. The use of magnets in the sorting process enables recyclers to easily separate them from the mixed waste stream.
  • Every year, around 400 million tons of metal is recycled worldwide.

Metals can be classified as ferrous, or non-ferrous. Ferrous metals are combinations of iron with carbon. Some common ferrous metals include carbon steel, alloy steel, wrought iron, and cast iron.
