    Steel has been recycled now for over 150 years. The reasons for recycling were mostly economic though, because it is much more affordable to recycle steel than to mine iron ore put it through the steel production process.

    The Earth911 site has some interesting facts about steel recycling, including that steel has been recycled for over 150 years (as edmccoy11 noted) and that Americans recycle more steel than plastic.
