The Steel Recycling Process

Have you ever been interested in metal recycling near Chicago? To learn more, watch this interesting video about metal recycling and the effective waste disposal of your cans and metal products.

Tons of recycled metal are dumped into a pit where it is melted together into one flowing, orange river of hot metal. This liquid metal is shaped and formed into long, orange-hot bars until those bars are flattened and cut into long, cooled, metal slats. These slats are then sold back to consumers as recycled content.
