A Look at the Different Types of Scrap Metal – and What You Can Do with Them

Scrap metal is a valuable and recyclable material found in almost every aspect of our daily lives, from cars and electronics to construction materials and household appliances. Recycling scrap metal not only helps preserve our natural resources but also reduces the amount of waste that goes to landfills, conserves energy, and reduces greenhouse gas emissions. Here’s a look at the different types of scrap metal – and what you can do to recycle them.
Ferrous metals
Ferrous metals are metals that contain iron, such as steel and cast iron. These metals are the most commonly recycled metals, accounting for over 60% of all metal recycling. Steel is one of the most widely used materials in the world and is highly recyclable. Recycled steel is used to make a variety of products, including cars, bridges, and buildings. Cast iron is often used in pipes, manhole covers, and engine blocks. Recycling ferrous metals is easy and profitable, as they can be recycled indefinitely without losing their quality. To recycle ferrous metals, you can take them to a local scrap yard or recycling center, like Langley Recycling, for those residing in Kansas City.

Call: Paycheck Fairness Act

Call: Paycheck Fairness Act

 

The Paycheck Fairness Act increases penalties when employers violate equal pay provisions. It also makes it unlawful to prohibit employees from discussing their wages. Take two minutes to ask your senators and representative to support the Paycheck Fairness Act.

Make a Call.

Today is Equal Pay Day because women have to work until March 14, 2023, to earn what a man made in 2022.

The gender wage gap leads to a loss of some $400,000 over the course of a working woman’s career. For women of color, that loss is even steeper. Read that again: $400,000.

The Paycheck Fairness Act would help close the wage gap in a few different ways by:

Making it unlawful to prohibit employees from talking about their wages.
Increasing penalties for violating the equal pay provision.
Directing the Department of Labor to provide trainings for negotiating compensation and working conditions.

It’s time. Women should get equal pay for equal work.

If you agree, take two minutes to call your senators and representative. Tell them to vote YES on the Paycheck Fairness Act.
