Unlike recycled paper and recycled glass, recycled metal can be put to indefinite use. Metal can be recycled again and again as it does not lose its strength or material compound. This makes metal recycling very beneficial. The process of metals recycling is different than plastic recycling; continue reading the process of recycling scrap metal.

 


Step One: Collection

 

Scrap metal is collected from the households as well as from the different industries. It is then sent to the sorting agents.

 


Step Two: Sorting

 

The metals are sorted based on their type and composition. Like metals are packed together and sent to the scrap metal recycling centers.

 


Step Three: Inspection

 

The metals are inspected to see if they are sorted correctly and if the like ones are kept together. Later they are melted.

 


Step Four: Melting

 

The metals are, later, heated in smelters. Smelters are devices which melt big chunks of metals at very high temperatures. Each metal or similar metals have different smelters because of their different melting points.

 


Step Five: Cooling

 

This is the last step in scrap metal recycling. Once the metals melt fully, they are molded into small bars and are allowed to cool down before they are reused. These small bars are called as ingots.
