Steel is one of the most recycled metals in the US. In 2018, it was estimated that between steel cans and other steel packaging, over 1.6 million tons of steel was recycled.
Whilst this is a huge amount, there is more to be done. In the same year it was estimated that 10.5 million tons of steel was taken to landfill. This made for 7.2% of ‘metals in municipal solid waste’ (MSW) landfilled.
It’s absolutely worth recycling steel, and not just because of the financial benefits you’ll receive by taking it to a metal recycling facility.
The process of recycling and re-developing steel is much more sustainable than the mining and processing involved with creating new steel. Using recycled steel saves around 74% of energy when compared to creating new steel.
Extracting metal is harmful to the environment because it causes air, water, soil and noise pollution, contributing to global warming. It also uses the limited natural resources we have left on our planet.
To give an example of just how valuable recycled steel is, in the US construction world, structural steel is made from 93% recycled material. And once a building comes to the end of its life, around 98% of the steel is recycled to create new steel products.
