It can’t be overemphasized that scrap metal recycling is extremely important and is very

beneficial. It plays a significant role in

supporting both positive economic and

environmental outcomes for businesses

and communities alike. It is successful in

ensuring scrap metal is not sent to landfills,

and provides the basic raw material for

new products. Metal recycling has a low

carbon footprint and is a much more

efficient way of using metal than getting it

from its raw material source.

The economic benefits of Euclid Ohio metal recycling indicate that it is a significant

income generator and makes up a part of the $64 billion that metal recycling brings to

important percentage of iron while non-ferrous metals do not contain any iron at all.

Nonferrous scrap includes aluminum, lead, copper, nickel, zinc, tin and others.

Retrieving Scrap Metal

quantities from anyone who has some surplus to requirements and sell it to interested

Ohio metal recycling scrap yards and any other businesses that can make use of scrap

metal. There are many community initiated scrap metal programs that include recycling,


In 2010, ferrous metal weighing 54 million metric tons and non ferrous metal weighing

8.2 metric tons was recycled. Generally, the

amount of ferrous metals recovered exceeds

nonferrous metals, which creates a lot of

revenue for businesses. Recycled nonferrous

scrap, which includes copper, aluminum,

lead, tin, zinc, nickel and others, is reused by

U.S. secondary metal processors as well as at

least 100 other countries throughout the

Lead weighing 1.2 million metric tons

Zinc weighing 162,000 metric tons
