I’ve read that only two forms of recycling have a net positive efficiency:

1. aluminum (principally beverage containers)
2. waste (principally plastics) that is melted/chopped and formed into such things as bus benches.

Rebuildable items (alternators, starters, etc)?

Though this might be a different discussion.
