Do you recycle aluminum cans?

It takes 95% less energy to make a new aluminum from recycled aluminum cans than to make a new aluminum can from raw materials.

    Aluminum is not biodegradable. Also making aluminum from ore requires a lot of energy. Recycling cans is easy and saves a whole lot of energy reducing green house gases. Recycling aluminum also reduces the mining required to dig up aluminum ore thereby saving the land and stopping pollution from mine run-off.

    Heck yeah. Even an old school, smoke-belching industrialist would recycle *metal*.

    That's always been true. Why did people suddenly stop recycling metals? Have you PRICED metals lately? Aluminum is over a buck a pound, copper is $3 a pound, steel is over $200 a ton.

    Yes, I recycle aluminum cans, papers, cardboard and bottles.

    Sure. We have curbside recycling pickup, and aluminum is just one of the many things they accept. We don't get any money for them, just convenience.

    yes. We sell all the aluminum we find (amazing how much of this resource is tossed away).

    I used to and when I get my own place again I most likely will. It is a neat way to cash in on something people take for granted.

    Of course, at a dollar sixty a pound scrap value you'd be a fool not to. It's sort of like throwing money in the garbage.
