Image of aluminum and steel cans

Aluminum and steel cans are shredded, cleaned, and then melted down to be made into new sheets of metal. Those metal sheets are used to create new products.

Steel is used to create new food cans, automotive bodies and car parts, appliances, and construction materials. Aluminum is used for new cans and other aluminum products.

Purchasers can change, but some examples of companies we ship these products to include Compass Metal Trading.
