Fun Facts About Scraps

1. Once an aluminum can is recycled, it can be part of a new can within six weeks. 

2. Because so many of them are recycled, aluminum cans account for less than 1% of the total U.S. wastestream, according to EPA estimates. 

It takes about 400 years for aluminum to break down naturally, but it is infinitely recyclable: aluminum can be recycled over and over without degrading. 

4. Producing new material from scrap uses 95 percent less energy than producing the same product from our natural resources. 

5. A steel mill using recycled scrap reduces water pollution, air pollution, and mining waste by about 70 percent. 

6. Millions of tons of iron and steel are diverted from the waste stream to the recycling stream due to steel’s magnetic properties that make it the easiest      material to separate from the solid waste stream.

7. 600 steel cans or tin cans are recycled every second. 

8. 42% of crude steel is made from recycled material. 

9. Iron and steel are the world's most recycled materials and among the easiest materials to reprocess.  This is due to the ability to incorporate magnets in the waste stream separation process. 

10. 25,000 Statues of Liberty can be built with copper that the United States of America recycles per year. 

11. In 2012, more than 55 million metric tons of ferrous metal was recycled by the US scrap industry. In that year, the USA ferrous scrap metal industry was valued approximately $30.1 billion.
