A Look at Metal Recycling

Recycling metal plays a critical role in energy conservation and waste management. If your household uses a recycling bin in Chicago, then you’re already helping to reduce your family’s need for waste disposal. However, you may have more metal to recycle than you realize. Watch this video for help identifying recyclable metals in your home.

You might be surprised by how many of your household items contain recyclable metal materials. Just a few examples include TV antennas, bikes, cars, fencing, fixtures, cookware, utensils, and appliances. If you can’t donate, sell, or continue to use these items, it’s important to recycle them instead of throwing them in the trash.
