Ever wonder exactly what items you can and can’t toss into the curbside recycling bin?
Many communities and towns have different rules on whether you can recycle certain items, such as cardboard, and what types of paper, plastic and glass are acceptable. But the one thing you never have to wonder about is the classic aluminum can.
The aluminum can is the king of recycling – it’s infinitely recyclable and the most valuable part of the recycling stream. Americans earn about $1 billion each year just by recycling aluminum cans. The next time you find yourself wondering what you can and can’t recycle, have no fear when it comes to the aluminum can. Recycle it!
