Aluminum Recycling
Recycling one aluminum can saves enough electricity to run a TV for 3 hours!
• A used aluminum can is recycled and back on the grocery shelf as a new can in as little as 60 days.

• Used aluminum beverage cans are the most recycled item in the U.S. but other types of aluminum, such as siding, gutters, car components, storm window frames, and lawn furniture can also be recycled.

• More aluminum goes into beverage cans than any other product.

• Because so many of them are recycled, aluminum cans account for less than 1% of the total U.S. waste stream, according to EPA estimates.

• An aluminum can that is thrown away will still be a can in 500 years!

• There is no limit to the amount of times aluminum can be recycled.

• We use over 80,000,000,000 aluminum soda cans every year!

• At one time, aluminum was more valuable than gold.

• The 36 billion aluminum cans land filled last year had a scrap value of more than $600 million.
