Providing Quality Recycling Options
Aluminum recycling uses scrap recycling in new products after it's been discarded by consumers. Typically, the aluminum recycling process means melting the metal, which is less expensive and more eco-friendly than creating new aluminum. In fact, it only uses 5 percent of the energy that would be used to make new aluminum. This is why 36 percent of all aluminum from the United States is from recycled scrap metal. The most common type of processed aluminum includes beverage cans that can be turned into aluminum cans.
