What Happens Next
Scrap metal from the Agency is collected by a third-party processor. Aluminum and steel are the two most common metals for recycling.
Aluminum can be recycled an infinite number of times. Compared to the mining and production of new aluminum from bauxite, recycling aluminum is less energy intensive and more cost effective.
Steel can be recycled almost indefinitely. In fact, scrap steel is essential to the production of new steel. At least 25 percent of new steel consists of recycled material.
