About 630 steel cans are recycled every second!
Steel cans can be recycled in more than 20,000 locations across the country.
Steel cans are used to package more than 1500 different kinds of food - everything from apples to zucchini. Steel cans are also used for paints and aerosol sprays, bandages, and shoe polish. Even oil filters are a form of a steel can.
Stack the nearly 19 billion steel cans recycled in 1996 end to end, and you would have a line stretching from here to the moon and back more than three times (based on a can height of 5 inches).
Steel cans contain 25% recycled content and are completely recyclable.
More than 46 million appliances - including old stoves, refrigerators, washers and dryers - were recycled in 1997.
The amount of steel recycled from appliances in 1997 would equal the amount needed to build 88 new baseball stadiums the size of the new BancOne Field in Phoenix, AZ.
The steel weight of the average refrigerator is 100 pounds; the average weight of a 10 year old is 75 pounds.
There are more than 12,000 places to recycle out-of-service appliances across the country.
Because of steel, you can display your latest artwork on the door of the refrigerator. Steel's magnetic attraction also makes it one of the easiest materials to recycle.
The number of cars recycled in 1997 alone - nearly 13 million - would cause a traffic jam circling the Earth more than one and three quarter times.
Recycling just one car saves 2,500 pounds of iron ore, 1,400 pounds of coal and 120 pounds of limestone.
Virtually every car taken off the road today is recycled - thanks to the steel and iron content!
It takes about 45 seconds to shred the average automobile into fist-sized pieces of steel for recycling.
The automobile is the most recycled consumer product in the world today.
