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.
