Aluminum Foil


Updated on November 27, 2018



Foil should be mostly clean, though some baked on food is ok. Wipe out food into compost, make the foil into a compact ball (combine with other pieces/balls of foil), place in blue recycling cart.


Opt for a reusable container or jar or reusable beeswax wrap.


It's easier to sort and recycle a big piece of aluminium foil than lots of little ones.
