Keep a recycling bin to collect scrap, just as you would for junk mail, plastic bottles, papers, or other materials. Once you have identified and gathered types of metal, take them to a facility that offers recycling services. If the center accepts your pieces, they melt them down, pour them into molds that solidify them into sheets. Manufacturers purchase reclaimed metals to reduce their production costs and source materials responsibly.
