Explore the Life of a Can

60 Days, from Your Recycling Bin, to Back Inside Your Refrigerator

Have you ever wondered what happens to your aluminum cans once they are recycled? Most of those cans take a remarkable journey from being collected, then shipped to a recycling plant, melted, then reformed into the very same can it was before! As aluminum has so many uses it may become something completely different, like a Cub Scout belt loop, or in the production of airplanes and spacecraft parts. Aluminum is an important metal used in so many applications because it is lightweight, inexpensive, durable, and infinitely recyclable!

As an American, I will do my best to
Be clean in my outdoor manners.
