Aluminum Containers & Trays
Container should be mostly clean and dry. Wipe out food into compost and crush (if possible) before putting in the blue recycling cart.
Opt for a reusable container instead, and carry it with you.
Aluminum products come from bauxite ore mined in countries such as Australia, China, and Brazil. Mining is associated with a number of environmental and social concerns, but metal can be continuously recycled so the need for more raw material can and should be minimized, as with increased recycling.
