We accept all sorts of scrap metal for recycling, but there’s something about aluminum that’s always fascinated us. Consider this:

  • An aluminum can can go from the garbage heap to the grocery store shelf in as little as 60 days.
  • A can that you recycle today can still be recycled – over and over again – for 500 years.
  • Over 113,000 aluminum cans are recycled every minute of every day.

Unlike paper or glass, aluminum is basically 100% recyclable. It’s amazing stuff.
