Portland's Recycling Super Heros

You know who Iron Man and the Man of Steel are, but did you know that iron and steel are also the super heros of recycling? Iron and Steel Scrap, also called Ferrous scrap, is the most recycled material in the world. This metal, which can be found in old automobiles or machinery, is crucial for the production of new cast iron or steel products. Two out of every three pounds of steel made in the US actually comes from recycled ferrous scrap.

Remember, no amount of scrap metal is too small and every piece we recycle is one less piece going to waste in a landfill. Check out our list of common household items you can recycle at R.S. Davis Recycling.
