Recycling one ton of aluminum:

Saves 39.6 barrels (1,663 gallons) of oil
Saves 237.6 million Btu's of energy

Aluminum Recycling Tips 

  • Prepare aluminum cans for recycling by either crushing the cans to save space or leaving them uncrushed. 
  • Cans that are rinsed out will have little or no odor and are less likely to attract bugs.

Did You Know? 

  • Recycling aluminum takes 95% less energy than making aluminum from raw materials. 
  • Two out of three aluminum cans were recycled in the United States in 1995. 
  • The industry is also helping to conserve aluminum resources through a process called light weighting. Fewer materials are used in the aluminum can so fewer resources are extracted. In 1992, the aluminum can weighed 24% less than a can designed in 1972. Where it once took 22 cans to make a pound, it now takes 30 cans to make a pound.
