Caption: Electromagnet being used to lift ferrous metal (iron and steel) at a scrap yard. The magnetic properties of ferrous metal make it easy to separate from other waste. Scrap steel is essential to the process of making new steel and can be recycled indefinitely without losing its quality. Photographed at Southhampton Docks, UK.
