What Type Of Metals Can Be Recycled

The good thing with metal is that almost all types of metal can be recycled! Regardless of how “old” or rusty the metal appears, it can always be recycled and made into something useful. This knowledge is particularly important, considering that the extraction of metal, its refinement and purification causes immense pollution to the environment. Steel plants are particularly notorious for the high amounts of carbon emissions.


Below are examples of some metals that can be recycled;

  1. Aluminum
  2. Steel
  3. Silver
  4. Copper
  5. Cast Iron
  6. Tin
  7. Brass/ bronzerecycling

When you look at all these examples, you will realize that most of the day to day items that we have in our homes are made from them. You have an aluminum soda can, a stainless steel cooking pot, a mobile phone charger made of copper, door knobs made of silver, and so on so forth. When it comes to disposing some of these things, almost 99% of the metals inside them can be recycled. As a home owner, you have several options on the best way to go about having these recycled. But usually, it is always advisable to have a waste clearance company that is conversant with the recycling plants around. Such a company will sort out all the metallic items out of all trash, and transport hem for recycling.

Metal is so precious that even recyclers buy it for a fee! If you have huge amounts of meal that needs to be recycled, you’re likely to earn something out of it. Companies specializing in e-waste removal are experts at sorting out the waste, so that the metal therein is all recycled.


The next time you have trash and garbage that needs to be cleared, make an effort of separating the metal part of it, and have it taken for recycling.
