Recycling

"Going Green" is a very popular phrase today. At North Star BlueScope Steel, Going Green is old news as we are already the largest scrap steel recycler in the state of Ohio. Nearly 1.5 million tons of scrap steel are recycled annually in our two electric arc furnaces. North Star BlueScope Steel purchases scrap steel from over 70 scrap dealers in Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, Illinois and Canada.

We are taking Going Green to a new level with an intense focus on not only recycling scrap steel but on reducing our electrical and natural gas consumption in our manufacturing of steel.

North Star BlueScope Steel has placed significant emphasis on the recycling of all materials in the plant and in its administrative offices. Cans, bottles and paper products are recycled in order to reduce our impact on landfills in our region.
