What Happens to Your Scrap Steel? 3 Common Ways It's Recycled, Ewa, Hawaii

Steel is one of the most common metals used throughout the world. With a quick scan of your home, you probably can spot several items made of this metal, including refrigerators, water heaters, furniture, and your vehicle. All these items are accepted by Island Recycling. This recycling center will take all types of scrap steel, including sheet and stainless steel, as well as plastic, paper, and cardboard.

Recycling steel and other scrap metals is an excellent way to get more use out of a product. Many new steel items are produced using recycled scrap steel; because of its metallurgical properties, steel can be continuously recycled into new items without degradation.

Here are a few items that are made from scrap steel:

  • Kapolei-HI-scrap-steelHousehold Appliances: It’s likely most appliances in your home were made using recycled steel. Even those with plastic exteriors probably contain recycled steel motors.
  • Automobiles: Today’s vehicles use an advanced high-strength steel that contains scrap steel. It is believed the material obtains greater durability through reprocessing.
  • Commercial & Residential Buildings: Most building construction relies on steel. Many homes are framed using beams composed almost entirely of recycled steel instead of wood. Metal roof shingles also are commonly made of scrap steel.

If you have unwanted items with steel components, bring them to Island Recycling at their Kapolei,  location. Call this recycling center at (808) 682-9200 or visit them online to learn more about scrap steel and other items they purchase, as well as their hauling services.
