Steel is the most recycled material on the planet, more than all other materials combined.
Two of every three pounds of steel in the US is manufactured using ferrous scrap.
About 60% of metals and alloys produced in the US are made from non-ferrous scrap.
It is estimated that scrap accounts for 40% of the world's raw material needs.
Every ton of new steel made from scrap steel conserves 2500 lbs. of iron ore, 1400 lbs. of coal and 120 lbs. of limestone.
As of the first quarter of 2015, the recycling industry has collected approximately 4 million switches, keeping 9,000 lbs. of mercury out of the environment.
EVRAZ Recycling is the largest metal scrap recycler in western Canada with 13 facilities across the prairies. We also have three facilities in the U.S. - one in North Dakota and two in Colorado.
