What happens to metal after sorting?

Waste from steel and aluminium packaging is utilised as a raw material by the Finnish and international metal industries. Recycled metal is used to manufacture new metal packaging and other metal products, such as bicycle frames, spades and car parts. Since the quality of metal does not deteriorate when it is recycled, it can be reused numerous times.
