1. There are many types of metal that can be recycled. From precious metals such as gold and silver to metals like copper, brass, steel and lead. If possible, you should try to clean the metal. Remove any tape, grease, glue, paint or other foreign materials.
  2. All aluminum cans whether they be canned food or soda cans should be rinsed before they are put in for recycling. For safety reasons, put all lids inside of the canned food so that someone else or yourself will not get cut by the jagged edges.
  3. Recycling aluminum foil is possible, but you need to clean it. If it covered with cheese from a casserole, then make sure you wipe all the cheese off before you put it in to be recycled.
  4. Contact for any metal recycling questions.
