There are many places on Long Island where you can find this metal. Though you may not get a load of money, you will be helping the environment by ridding it of unwanted metal.

Recycling Aluminum


In theory, aluminum is 100% recyclable and you would not even lose any of its natural qualities. It is one of the highest per capita metals used in the United States. Knowing the per capita stocks is important for recycling planning, as you can gauge their approximate lifespans. And due it is high usage rate, the recovery of aluminum is an important task for those in the aluminum industry.

Recycling of aluminum involves melting the scrap meal. This process requires only 5% of the energy used to produce aluminum. This is a significant gain in energy and saves natural resources from being used again. Recycled aluminum is also known as secondary aluminum. It maintains the same physical properties as primary aluminum and is produced in a wide range of formats. 80% of alloy injections uses secondary aluminum.
