The lack of natural iron-containing resources causes an increased interest in secondary materials. The article is devoted to the formation of the approach to the sound recycling of metal containing products. The article discusses options for the approach, organized abroad and based on the analysis of the man-caused elemental stream, the search for ways to involve secondary resources in production. Particular attention is paid to the place of retro prognosis in the analysis of the man-caused elemental stream carried out by means of computer simulation in the conditions of the region under consideration. In determining the volume of secondary material formation becomes possible to competently plan their involvement in production. Planning for the long-term perspective is much more convenient to carry out with the help of the computing power of the computer. In the Russian Federation, this problem has been little studied and requires further research.
