DID YOU KNOW…?
Recycling 1 aluminum can saves enough energy to run a 100 watt bulb for 20 hours, a computer for 3 hours, or a television for 2 hours. Aluminum uses 95 percent less energy to recycle than it does to create it from raw materials. It is 100 percent recyclable and can be used over and over again with a short turn-around time. Aluminum cans can be recycled into soda cans, pie plates, license plates, thumbtacks, aluminum foil and many other items. A used aluminum can is recycled and back on the grocery shelf as a new can, in as little as 60 days. Recycling aluminum cans saves 2 billion pounds in landfills each year.
