WHAT MATERIALS ARE RECYCLABLE

cansIron and steel account for the vast majority of materials that are recycled. They are followed by a number of man-made materials, including plastics, glass, paper, metals, and rubber.

It is well-known that the processing of ores depletes our natural resources, and it is especially wasteful of water, it is costly, and it is dangerous to air, land and water. We are always seeking to improve systems that permit scrap metals to be more effectively re-melted, remanufactured, and processed into totally new consumable goods.
