Residential Metal Recycling
Metals play a fundamental role in our economy. They are found everywhere in all Canadian homes, whether hidden in the wall structure, pipes, piping, wires, or visible in household appliances, doors or windows. Some metals are for more common use, such as steel or stainless steel, aluminum, bronze, copper, tin, iron, brass, magnesium, precious metals, lead and zinc. All these metals have one thing in common: they are recycled at the end of their useful life.
There are several groups of household items made of metal or containing metal:
- Large appliances such as refrigerators, stoves, dishwashers, washers, dryers and water heaters. These are commonly called white goods.
- Many other large items are partially made of metal: barbecues, bicycles, ladders, garden or patio furniture, aluminum siding, automobile parts, ironing boards, doors and window frames, etc. Microwave ovens and air conditioning units can also be considered white goods.
