The most common metals we need to consider when recycling are aluminum and steel. Aluminum and steel are thrown away every day. North Americans use over 100 million steel cans and over 200 million aluminum beverage cans every day. Recycling is the most efficient way to reduce aluminum and steel waste.
Recycling your used steel cans at home is easy. All you need to do is rinse the food from the cans. That’s it. Years ago, you were asked to remove the paper labels and the tops and bottoms from cans. This is no longer necessary.
Like aluminum, steel can also be recycled again and again. It does not lose any of its strength or quality in the recycling process. It can be a never-ending process that continues to save energy and resources.
