Steel and Your Appliances

Oct 21, 2014

Do you have an old broken washing machine sitting in the garage gathering dust? There is a much better place that broken appliance could be and that’s at the scrap metal yard being recycled!

Steel comprises approximately 75% of all the major appliances. Almost everything from the outside to the inside is made of steel, including the motors. Ninety-nine pounds of steel in the average major appliance can be recycled into new steel products. This number could be even higher in some of the older appliances, which were built with older types of steel making them heavier. Though these appliances may have gotten lighter, the same durable quality can be found in the steel being used.
