Metal Recycling - the facts

This makes a substantial contribution to UK international trade figures. It makes a greater contribution than any other industry to meeting European targets for recycling products, such as cars, cans and electrical goods Using recycled materials makes high quality metals; and at the same time reduces the need to mine natural resources, saves energy and reduces pollution.
