Over 85% of all appliances are recycled in the US. With the typical appliance being about 75% steel by weight, recycling these old appliances is conserving energy. By recycling one ton of steel, 2,500 pounds of iron ore, 1,400 pounds of coal, and 120 pounds of limestone are conserved. Recycling steel versus producing virgin steel in the US saves the equivalent energy to power 18 million homes.
