Junk, scrap, waste, refuse, trash, garbage, whatever you refer to it as it is stuff that you don’t need any more, and you need to get rid of it. Junk can be categorized into a variety of types, such as wood and natural products, plastics, glass and metal. Each type of material is treated and processed differently once it reaches the plant. Metal can be found in every aspect of our lives, in building construction, cars and appliances. Once those items are no longer of use they can be processed and melted down to create new products, using environmentally friendly methods. Scrap metals are usually taken to a wrecking yard or breakers yard where it is gathered using huge magnets and split into different types of metal, such as iron, steel, copper and brass. Once the metal is all sorted each category has a different melting process but it all leads to new products being made from old stock.
