What are ferrous metals?
Ferrous metals are able to be recycled, with steel being one of the most recycled materials in the world. Ferrous metals contain an appreciable percentage of iron, and the addition of carbon and other substances creates steel.
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.
What are the most commonly recycled items?
The most commonly recycled items are containers, cans, automobiles, appliances and construction materials. For example, in 2008, more than 97% of structural steel and 106% of automobiles were recycled. This was found when comparing the current steel consumption for each industry with the amount of recycled steel being produced. A typical appliance is about 75% steel by weight and automobiles are about 65% steel and iron.
