Metals (free drop off at our Swink Location): Aluminum, Steel, Tin Cans, and Washers & Dryers (no Freon).

Aluminum cans are the worlds premiere example of a recyclable waste. Recycling aluminum requires less than 5% percent of the energy required to make it from bauxite ore.


Aluminum Facts:

  • Over 80,000,000,000 aluminum soda cans are used every year.

  • A used aluminum can is recycled and back on the grocery shelf as a new can, in as little as 60 days.

  • Every minute an average of 113,204 aluminum cans are recycled.

  • The aluminum in a can is worth about 1 cent.

  • The average employee consumes 2.5 beverages a day while at work.

  • Over 50 percent of the aluminum cans produced are recycled.

  • Two-thirds of the aluminum ever produced is in use today.

  • The energy you save by recycling a single aluminum can will run a TV for three hours.

  • Approximately 350,000 aluminum cans are made in a minute.

  • An estimated 80,000,000 Hershey’s Kisses are wrapped each day, using enough aluminum foil to cover over 50 acres of space — that’s almost 40 football fields. All that foil is recyclable, but not many people realize it.
