Recycling

"Going Green" is a very popular phrase today. At North Star BlueScope Steel LLC, 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 LLC 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 as well as natural gas consumption in the manufacturing of steel.

Lastly there has also been a significant emphasis on the recycling of all materials in the plant and the administrative offices. Cans, bottles and paper products are recycled in order to reduce our impact on landfills in our region.
