Where can I recycle metal?
In most cities, curbside recycling programs only accept metal cans made of aluminum or steel. If you have other types of metals to recycle, you may need to take advantage of bulky debris pick-up provided by your city. To schedule this service, contact your local debris hauler and provide them with information about the metal items you need to recycle. Bulk debris pick-up typically accepts miscellaneous scrap such as ironing boards, aluminum bats, and silverware, as well as large scrap items like appliances and electronics.
Metal can be recycled repeatedly without losing its quality or properties. The recycling process for metal involves melting and purifying the metal to remove any impurities, then reshaping it into new products. The most recycled metals include aluminum, copper, and steel.

The payment you receive for scrap metal recycling is typically based on the weight, so the amount you have is important. Nonferrous metals are generally worth more than ferrous metals. It’s best to wait until you have a significant quantity to ensure maximum payment if you plan to recycle smaller items like cans or coat hangers. Note: We’ll always recycle, but some metals hold no value.

You can take metal hangers to a dry cleaner for reuse. Many secondhand stores will accept and resell metal hangers, even if it’s in need of repair. Unwanted hangers are also often donated to some charity shops that will use them again or returned to some large retailers that will recycle them.
Aluminum is a popular metal among non-ferrous metal recycling yards due to its ease of processing. About 75% of all aluminum ever produced is still in use, thanks to its high recyclability rate of 95% to 98%, according to the Aluminum Association.
Recycled metal is often used in the construction of buildings, ships, and railways. It can also be transformed into wires and various tools after the recycling process.
