Recycling Stages

Scrap Map

The recycling process is depicted on the ScrapMap™ as a large circle. Each of the circles on this page shows how we can take something old and create a new and useful product. In the United States in 2011, more than 134 million metric tons of scrap metal, paper, plastic, glass, textiles, rubber, and electronics – valued at $100 billion – were manufactured into new products.
