How are metals recycled?

When metal is picked up, dropped off, etc, they sort the metals by type (iron, tin, aluminum, etc). After this is done the recycle workers move them to a melting pot (via conveyor belt) melt them into usable ingots (I dont know what the technical term, but blocks of metal) and sell them/donate them to factories to reuse them.
