Recycling can vary from material to material and from technology to technology, but here is a general overview. Metals can be recycled repeatedly without losing their properties. American Iron and Steel Institute (AISI) data reveal that steel is the world’s most recycled material. Aside from gold and copper, other highly recycled metals include aluminium, copper, silver, brass, and silver.
Recycling metals repeatedly without degrading their properties make valuable material. People collect scrap metal to sell to recycling operations because scrap metal has value.
The recycling of metals enables us to preserve natural resources while requiring less energy to process than the manufacture of new products using virgin raw materials. In general, metals can be classified as ferrous or non-ferrous. Metals containing iron and carbon are called ferrous metals. Steel, alloy steel, wrought iron, and cast iron are among the common ferrous metals.
