Aluminum Foil


Updated on March 9, 2019



Foil should be "mostly clean." Quickly rinse or wipe out food then make the foil into a compact ball up to softball size.


Opt for a reusable container or jar or reusable beeswax wrap. If you do use foil, try to reuse it before disposal.


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