A look at recycling Aluminum


Aluminum can be recycled quickly and easily. In fact, a soda can you recycle today could be back on a store shelf in about two months! Making an aluminum can from recycled aluminum uses 96% less energy than it does making one for the first time. Here’s how it is recycled.

•You bring your aluminum cans to a recycling center.
•They are moved to a recycling plant and shredded and melted.
•The melted aluminum is cooled and formed into block called an ingot.
•The ingot is made into sheets and used to make new products.
