From Soda Cans to Skyscrapers: The Hidden World of Recycled Metal

CM Metals in Dover, NJ is passionate about creating a sustainable future. But have you ever stopped to think about how much-recycled metal you encounter every day? It's everywhere, playing a vital role in our modern world!

Look around your house. That aluminum can you crushed this morning? It could be reborn as a sleek new bike frame. The copper pipes bringing water to your faucet? They might have been part of a car roof in a previous life. Recycled steel can be transformed into countless products, including:

  • The roof over your head: Metal roofing, a popular choice for its durability, often utilizes recycled materials.

  • Appliances that make life easier: From refrigerators to washing machines, recycled steel is a key component in many household appliances.

  • The can that holds your favorite drink: The majority of aluminum beverage cans are made from recycled aluminum!

  • Transportation: Cars, trains, bicycles, and even airplanes all rely on recycled metals for their construction.

  • The very buildings we live and work in: Structural beams, pipes, and other building materials often contain recycled steel and aluminum.
