yearalone, scrap recyclers handled more than 125 million tons of recyclablesdestined for

domestic use and overseas markets whichclearly portrays the scrap industry’s achievement in the US scrap market.But, the matter of the beginners coming out fruitful or not depend onhow systematically and correctly they’ve planned and organized their business.
