All metals are recyclable – in fact, aluminum and steel can continue to be recycled. But how does that help the environment? Yes, it took over 400 years for something to naturally degrade aluminum.

Recycling waste protects the environment in many ways:
1. Prevent land degradation through mining.
2. Prevent the removal of minerals and natural resources from the earth.
3. Help in reducing soil and water pollution and the production of greenhouse gases.
4. Reducing energy consumption.
5. Reduces the risk of toxic chemicals (from scrap metal such as cars) entering groundwater.
