Why it Pays to Recycle Scrap Metal

Steel is the world’s most recycled material and it can be continuously recycled, without any reduction in the quality of the end product, preserving precious resources for our future generations.

Steel made from recycled material uses 75% less energy than steel produced from the raw materials, also saving on harmful greenhouse emissions.

Every tonne of recycled steel saves 1131kg of iron ore, 633kg of coal and 54kg of limestone – so it pays to recycle.

Did you know?

How to tell if scrap metal is ferrous or non-ferrous?

Ferrous metals & alloys contain iron. Non-ferrous metals don’t.

There are several other factors that differentiate the two …

Ferrous metals include mild steel, carbon steel, stainless steel, cast iron, and wrought iron. These metals are primarily used for their tensile strength and durability, especially mild steel which helps hold up the tallest skyscrapers and the longest bridges in the world.

You can also find ferrous metals in housing construction, industrial containers, large-scale piping, automobiles, rails for railroad and transportation, most of tools and hardware you use around the house, and the knives you cook with at home.

Non-ferrous metals include aluminium, brass, copper, nickel, tin, lead and zinc, as well as precious metals like gold and silver. While non-ferrous metals can provide strength, they are primarily used where their differences from ferrous metals can provide an advantage.

For instance, non-ferrous metals are much more malleable than ferrous metals.

Non-ferrous metals are also much lighter, making them well-suited for use where strength is needed, but weight is a factor, such as in the aircraft or canning industries.

Because they contain no iron, non-ferrous metals have a higher resistance to rust and corrosion, which is why you’ll find these materials in use for gutters, water pipes, roofing and road signs.

The easiest way to determine whether a metal item is ferrous or non-ferrous is to use a magnet. Ferrous metals like steel and iron are magnetic, non-ferrous metals like aluminium, brass, copper, nickel, lead and zinc are not.
