Historically metal was one of the first materials to be recycled. It’s value, relative ease of recycling and efficiency to transport (high density) makes it a perfect material for recycling. A huge benefit of metal is that is can be recycled again and again without altering its properties!
Metals are essential, versatile and resilient. They can be used for industrial purposes from airplanes to domestic items like cutlery. The most common recyclable metals include aluminum and steel. Metals such as copper, brass, silver and gold are so high in value that they are rarely thrown away but collected for recycling.
