It may be that nonferrous scrap makes up a small percentage of the total quantity of material recycled in the United States, but by value, it accounts for more than half of total U.S. scrap recycling industry performance, approximately $32 billion in 2015. This was achieved by the processing eight million metric tons of nonferrous scrap, generated from a range of consumer, commercial and industrial sources, including copper and precious metal circuitry in electronic devices, soft-drink containers, automobile batteries and radiators, aluminum siding, airplane parts much more.

Recovered nonferrous scrap, including aluminum, copper, lead, nickel, tin, zinc and others, is consumed by secondary processors in the U.S. as well as in more than 100 countries worldwide.

Nonferrous metals do not degrade or lose their chemical or physical properties in the recycling process, resulting in their capacity of being recycled an infinite number of times.
