Interesting Steel Facts

  • Steel cans are used to package more than 1500 different kinds of food - everything from apples to zucchini. They are also used for paints and aerosol sprays, pet foods, bandages, shoe polish, and hundreds of other uses.
  • Steel cans contain a minimum of 25% recycled content and are completely recyclable.
  • Recycling steel helps save landfill space while providing a valuable scrap resource to the steel industry. Using old steel to make new steel also preserves natural resources and energy.
