Metals are the most recyclable of all materials, because they do not lose any of their unique properties no matter how many times they are processed. Recyclable metals can be divided into two main categories: ferrous metals such as steel contain iron, while non-ferrous metals such as copper, aluminum, and nickel do not.
Watch this video to see how a scrap metal processing facility extracts the recyclable metals from a junked car. You will watch as the car is shredded into small chunks, then processed several times to separate ferrous and non-ferrous metals from other waste materials such as glass and rubber.
