Recycling metal has environmental and financial benefits as it conserves natural resources, avoids toxic leaks, reduces emissions of greenhouse gases, saves natural habitats and uses less energy compared to making new metal.  Metal can be melted and reused many times over without its properties being altered and therefore perfect for recycling.

Although there are many environmental reasons to recycle metal, in addition it’s been shown that recycling scrap metal creates more jobs than incinerating metal waste.
