The Four Stages of Recycling Metal
The recycling of metals is divided into four phases: the collection stage, the processing phase (where compacting metal occurs), the shredding process, and finally, selling it to small mills which produce steel. Recycling metals uses 74% less energy compared to using virgin material.
You can recycle unwanted items by following these tips:
1. You can ask your delivery person to remove the old appliance when you buy a new one. Businesses either recycle or dispose it properly.
2. A professional can dismantle the discarded appliances and collect the recyclables to bring to the recycling center in your area.
3. Sell it online, donate it, give it away to friends, or post it on Freecycle.com if the appliance still works.

There are many benefits to recycling aluminum cans. Every year the aluminum industry spends more than $800 million on empty cans for recycling. The money raised can be given to charitable and non-profit groups. Many of these groups recycle cans for money to support their organization. Cans that are recycled curbside generate money for community services. Aluminium industry teams up with groups like Habitat for Humanity by leaving can drop-off boxes in various places to help raise money for families.
You can recycle aluminum foil along with your cans of aluminium, but it is always better to re-use it as a food wrapper. It’s easy to wash the foil and then let it air dry along with your other dishes.
Most local supermarkets have recycling machines. You feed the cans into the slot. Depending on the state where you reside, you get a voucher for the value of all the cans.
