Environmental Benefits of Metal Recycling
Aside from the diversion of material from landfills, other important benefits of metal recycling versus the creation of virgin metal include a reduction in energy consumption as well as in the use of other materials. For example, recycled aluminum requires 95 percent less energy, while copper needs 90 percent less, and steel 56 percent less. Additionally, the recycling of one ton of steel avoids the use of 2,500 pounds of iron ore, 1,400 pounds of coal and 120 pounds of limestone.

The recycling rate is a very important measure in terms of landfill diversion. Scrap metal has been recycled for thousands of years because it has been long recognized as being a more efficient process than mining and processing new ore. Recycling rates for metal is generally high, due to its value.

For example, ferrous metals have a recovery rate as follows:

Cars:
106 percent
Appliances:
90 percent
Steel cans:
67 percent
Structural steel:
98 percent
Reinforced steel:
70 percent
