Recycling cars and trucks provides enough steel to produce almost 13 million new automobiles each year. The metal removed is reused for a new vehicle’s chassis and engine, which “closes the loop” in steel recycling. Steel from old cars produce 48 million steel utility poles - one third of the utility poles used in the U.S. The steel found in just six cars is enough to build a new house using steel framing.
