America is one of the largest consumers of gold in the world. According to the U.S. Treasury Department, the United States currently holds over 8,000+ metric tons, or 250,000,000+ troy ounces worth of fine gold at secure facilities around the country. Over 50% of this gold, approximately 4,500+ metric tonnes, is stored at the world-famous United States Bullion Depository at Fort Knox, Kentucky, where it is guarded by an active U.S. Army camp.
Recycling is the process of collecting and processing materials and turning them into new products. Recycling reduces the need to extract new raw materials and reduces waste, pollution, and harm to our environment. Old scrap gold can be melted down to produce new ones.
When you sell your gold, it gets melted down and made into new pieces of jewelry. Even tech giant Dell has joined the new initiative and proposed that they will start mining old or broken laptops for gold and turning the recycled metal into jewelry or new electronics.
