Metals are unique for various reasons. To be sure, the fact that metals come from the earth and that metals like steel, iron, and aluminum (amongst others) can be manipulated for building and manufacturing purposes, offering strength and durability, is pretty amazing. Another unique characteristic of metals is the fact that metals can be recycled nearly indefinitely. Once a metal is extracted from the earth and enters the consumer stream, it can be recycled and reused time and time again, usually without compromising the integrity of the metal.

In addition, jobs are created, the economy is stimulated, and the business that sells the scrap metal benefits by getting cash for their scrap. Because recycled metal is also less expensive than newly-mined metals, businesses can also save on their production costs by choosing metal recycling.
