Did you know that steel is one of the most recycled building materials in the construction industry?
Any steel product, including steel buildings that reach the end of its lifecycle or are no longer needed, is 100% recyclable.
Any steel decks, steel joists, steel beams, or steel doors can be recycled and used again.
And not only can it be recycled, but it can be recycled into a completely different product.
That means parts of your old metal building could be turned into bicycles.
Steel is often chosen as a building material for its strength and durability, but more and more people choose it now because of its sustainability.
More than 60 million tons of steel are recycled every year in the U.S. alone.
Globally that number increases by almost ten times. It’s the most recycled material.
In the article below, we will go over the process of recycling your old metal building and a few of the benefits that come with doing so.
