Aluminum is a sustainable metal and can be recycled over and over again. An aluminum can is generally turned into a new can and back on store shelves within 60 days.


Steel, including cans commonly used for anything from coffee to soup to pet food, is one of the most recycled materials in the U.S. Both aluminum and steel cans are accepted in community single stream recycling curbside and drop-off programs.

* May require additional preparation or fees. Other options may be available.
