We’ve all seen them- battered highway signs that have been hit by cars, battered by weather, tagged

by graffiti artists and sometimes even shot by vandals. Or they’re just outdated and need to be replaced. So what happens to old highway signs when they’re taken down?

Well in Washington, they get recycled. The state has a highway sign recycling program that’s reused 529,300
aluminum signs!

The Washington State Department of Transportation blog has some more amazing numbers on the sheer number of signs in the state and how much money that saves us.
