Recycling scrap metal in the United States dates back to the revolutionary war where colonist would find u
sed shot and re-melt the lead back into new shot to win our independence.  
Today the scrap metal industry is high tech and employees over 130,000 men and women across our great country.  At Metalink we are committed to keep our landfills and country side clean of end of life metal products and industrial scrap metal generated by our manufacturing sector.  The scrap metal industry also plays a key part in trade balance, exporting billions of dollars of goods to over 158 countries world wide.  

Metalink is making a difference by being a part of this great industry.   Each pound of non-ferrous and every gross ton of ferrous scrap metal we manage plays a major role in keeping our resources for future generations.  Over 82 million metric tons or 180.7 billion lbs of scrap metal is recycled each year.  Recycling plays a major role in our overall economy, the following outlines some interesting facts about our Industry:

  • United States recycles enough Ferrous scrap metal to produce 25 Eiffel Towers each day of the year. 
  • Copper: Our industry recycles enough copper to build 26,000 Statues of Liberty. 
  • If all of the aluminum recycled in the United States was used to produce beverage cans and we stacked them on top of one another we would have a line of cans that stretched over 25 million miles, the distance from the earth to venus.
  • A used aluminum can is recycled and back on the shelf in as little as 60 days.
