The Value Behind Aluminum RecyclingPosted on 10 February 2021
It’s surprising how prevalent aluminum products are in everyday life. Aluminum is very widely used in countless products and applications in every aspect of modern life. And that’s precisely why aluminum recycling has become so important and so relevant.
In fact, the most valuable metal in a typical recycling bin is aluminum. And while prices for scrap metal can fluctuate, it’s not uncommon for a ton of aluminum to generate over $1,000.00. What’s more, with scrap metal pick up, the entire process is made easier.
Aluminum is probably the most recycled metal
Aluminum is likely the most recycled metal in the world. It’s also the most recyclable metal, which means that nearly 75% of the aluminum produced in the U.S.A. is still used. The best thing about aluminum is that it can be recycled over and over again endlessly in a “closed-loop.”
Unlike other recyclable metals, aluminum actually pays for itself in the industrial waste process. This is because the demand for aluminum continues to rise, as does the price of waste aluminum. It makes sound economic sense when compared to manufacturing new metal.
The economic reasons for aluminum recycling
While aluminum recycling does provide benefits for both the environment and the economy, there’s simply not enough waste aluminum material being recycled worldwide. This is all part of the extraordinary levels of residential and commercial waste worldwide.
Of course, the problem is that when aluminum isn’t getting recycled, new aluminum products are being manufactured from “virgin” ore. Manufacturing aluminum from “virgin” ore means that enormous amounts of energy are being consumed for mining and processing.

To get the very best price for scrap aluminum, the material should be adequately prepared and separated from other scrap metals. In other words, the more work the scrap yard has to do in separating metals, the less they are ready to pay for the scrap.
