Metals are valuable materials that can be recycled again and again without degrading their properties. Scrap metal recycling involves the recovery and processing of scrap metal from end-of-life products or structures, as well as from manufacturing scrap, so that it can be introduced as a raw material in the production of new goods. Scrap metal recycling is help in keeping a green environment and extracting and processing virgin material, while also generating more jobs.
Metal recycling process involves a number of steps such as collection, sorting, process, melting, purification, solidifying and last, after the metals are cooled and solidified, they are ready to use.
