Metal can be recycled forever
The quality of metal does not deteriorate in the recycling process, so it can be recycled forever. Metal taken to eco take-back points is transported to reception terminals, where it is sorted and stored, and related statistics are also compiled. From the terminals, metal waste is transferred to crushing plants. Crushed metal waste is delivered to foundries where scrap metal is turned into new raw material for the metal industry.
Recycled metal is used, for example:
- in new metal packaging
- in bicycle frames
- car parts
