Metal Recycling Fun Facts
Did you know?
For every ton of aluminum recycled: 13 Million watts of electricity is saved, 95% less air pollution is produced, 4 tons of chemical product are conserved, and 5 to 8 tons of bauxite ore is conserved. Most of the bauxite ore used to make aluminum cans is mined in the tropics including tropical forests. Recycling aluminum helps save tropical forests. Turning old cans into new cans saves 95% of the energy needed to make cans from ore. One recycled aluminum can save enough electricity to run a computer or a TV for three hours.
