Default Steel Shot blasting steel dust cannot be recycled???

Have a sample assayed and if it is high iron and nothing exotic a farmer
might want to dress his field with it - or you your front yard grass. Grass
uses iron to green with. People don't like it since it rusts. So
fields are best.

Some company is offering me to take a large number of barrels full of
worn out steel shot blast. It is a all steel powder with grains the
size of regular table salt.

I took a sample to a scrap yard and they say that they do not want to
pay for it as there is "no market for this commodity". As I cannot
easily see why this powder cannot be melted, I would like to see if
anyone knows why? What is so bad about used all steel shot blast
media?
