Metal Cans Do Belong in your Recycling Bin

Yes! Definitely recycle your cans! Metal cans -- including aluminum, steel, and tin -- are infinitely recyclable. In other words, they can be melted down and reformed repeatedly without losing quality or mass. Metal cans are widely accepted in recycling programs so you can confidently recycle them (once you make sure they are empty and rinsed, of course!).

Reminder: This post is referring to metal food and beverage cans; not all metal items belong in the residential recycling stream. Let us know if you have a question about if an item is recyclable.
