Can You Recycle a Sink of Metal?
It makes sense that you can recycle a sink made of porcelain or stone—but how about regular metal? Yes, you can recycle sinks of metal too, though the recycling use may be slightly different. In fact, metal is often used in a variety of industries and 65% of all the steel currently produced is recycled.
Donating sinks of metal to charity or as raw material
can help keep the earth clean…
Recycled metal of all types, including galvanized steel, can be melted down and re-made into new metal product. When material is recycled, natural resources such as iron ore, coal and limestone are saved. Your first option is to simply donate the old sink itself, in its whole form, to a charity organization or an individual who needs a working sink installed in a bathroom or kitchen. Even non-luxury sinks can be pricey, so individual donation or giving the sink to a charitable group like Goodwill, Habitat for Humanity or The Salvation Army is a smart move.
