Recycling is done on different materials and it varies with it.In the case of steel recycling, the steel cans are first deformed into structures called as bales and then are added to a vessel and the temperature is increased to 1700 degree celsius into which liquified iron and oxygen is added. Now we get flat piece of steel which is spinned into large circles and then it is used to make new products like car, bikes and paper clips.
