  • Where to Recycle Aluminum Cans

    It’s easy to recycle aluminum cans and that’s good –  because they are everywhere. According to World Counts, we use about 200 million aluminum cans a year.

    Aluminum is the most abundant element on Earth but it still takes massive amounts of energy to produce many cans each day.

    Luckily, aluminum works great as a recycled material. A recycled aluminum can be reused almost indefinitely because the material is so sturdy. Used aluminum can be recycled and back on store shelves in as few as 60 days! Check the Recycling Revolution for more cool facts about recycling aluminum.

    How to Recycle Aluminum Cans

    Aluminum cans can simply go into your regular single-stream recycling and picked up curbside.

    Additionally, many material recycling centers take aluminum cans and you can even earn money back for them. In Philadelphia, check out Nicholas Scrap Metal, Pasco Metal Recycling, or M. Dunn Recycling.
