Aluminum is a material that can be recycled almost infinitely into new metal products. But aluminum isn’t just limited to beverage cans. Aluminum foil used for baking and covering dishes is 100 percent pure metal, which can be easily recycled. Metal covers used in food packaging -- like those found on yogurt cups and cream cheese containers -- can be removed, cleaned and recycled, too. All you need to do is crumple the foil into a ball and toss into the bin. Make sure it’s clean, since food particles can contaminate a load of recyclable metal.
