Steel pipe used in plumbing is usually galvanized to prevent corrosion as water passes through. These pipes last for a long time, but once they are replaced, the best thing to do with them is to recycle them. If galvanized steel goes into a landfill, the metals can leach into the soil contaminate the surrounding environment as the metal decomposes over time. Additionally, recycling steel conserves resources and energy needed to mine metals and smelt them into new steel.
