In 2007, the U.S. ferrous scrap industry was valued at $21.6 billion.

If the ferrous scrap that is recycled in the U.S. were put into rail cars, the train would stretch 11,349 miles—nearly halfway around the world.

On average, the U.S. processes enough ferrous scrap daily to build five Eiffel Towers every day of the year.

In 2007, the U.S. scrap industry recycled more than 81.6 million metric tons of ferrous metal.

Steel produced by predominantly scrapfed electric arc furnaces account for 59% of the total raw steel produced in the United States last year—nearly 58 million metric tons.

The U.S. is the largest exporter of ferrous scrap in the world. In 2007, 15.6 million metric tons of ferrous scrap—valued at more than $5 billion—were exported to 133 countries, including Turkey, China, Canada, Taiwan, South Korea, Malaysia, Mexico, Thailand, India, and Egypt.

Top exports include:
5,000,000 metric tons of shredded steel scrap
3,300,000 metric tons of #1 heavy melting steel
1,800,000 metric tons of alloyed non-stainless steel
1,100,000 metric tons of cast iron

Recycling – Metals, Batteries, Electronics, Wood, Paper and Plastic

Recycling is here to stay! We at Albert Bros. are passionate about the role we can play in helping to conserve resources for future generations while making our community a better place to live and work.

Recycling reduces the need to mine for raw materials and reduces both energy consumption and the emission of greenhouse gases that contribute to global climate change. At the same time, recycling helps maintain a steady supply of raw materials for America and the world.

Recycling turns materials that would otherwise become waste into valuable resources. Collecting metals, batteries, electronics, wood, paper and plastic is just the first in a series of steps that generates a host of financial, environmental, and social returns. Many of these benefits accrue locally as well as globally by keeping hundreds of millions of pounds of material out of our landfills.
