Stainless Steel Stainless steel is generally stamped as “Stainless Steel”. Though a ferrous metal, magnets will not usually stick to stainless steel, as they do with iron and other steel. Stainless steel is an iron alloy that contains nickel and chromium to protect it against corrosion and rust. Stainless steel is remarkably strong and resistant to high temperatures and severe environmental and chemical conditions. A stainless steel surface is germ resistant and easy to clean and disinfect. Stainless steel is used to make household, medical/surgical, construction, transportation and many other products. Discarded stainless steel sinks are a common form seen at recycling centers. Stainless steel is a popular material in household items such as sinks, kitchen appliances, cookware and cutlery. Demand for stainless steel continues to grow and recycling this metal has become very important in order to meet demand for recycled stainless steel. Recycling stainless steel is much better for the environment and energy use than starting from scratch. RecycleWise will accept household stainless steel with other materials attached, for example kitchen cookware. Usually, about 60% of cookware is stainless steel with 40% being another material to include Polypropylene (PP) handles.
