Appliance Recycling

Did you know that the typical appliance is about 75% steel by weight? Over 85% of all appliances are recycled in the US. By recycling one ton of steel, 2500 pounds of iron ore and 1400 pounds of coal and 120 pounds of limestone are conserved. 90% of retired appliances are taken to recycling centers in the US. Recycling steel vs producing virgin steel in the US saves the equivalent energy needed to power 18 million homes.[1]
