Aluminium recycling: a sustainable process
Aluminium recycling is considered a sustainable process because the energy used by the recycling industry is 5% of the total energy used for the production of primary aluminium from the mines. This means that this process has a low environmental impact and reduces economic costs. In addition, aluminium material is fully recyclable, endlessly, without any loss of quality.
But what kind of aluminium can be considered recyclable? Here’s a list of objects: drinks cans, tins, trays, pet food, wrapping foil, empty aerosols. Before recycle them, make sure you fully understand the legislation of your municipality that will tell you where and how to recycle aluminium.
In particular, before recycling an aluminium food container you should rinse it out because you have to make sure that it’s as clean as possible. Then, scrunch up your tray and place it in the right bin.
