When you peel off the metal lid from a yogurt or cream cheese container, you might wonder: Is that foil lid recyclable? The good news is, yes it is. It’s made entirely from aluminum and is as easily recyclable as a metal soda can. But there’s one caveat: You must rinse it clean. Be sure to rinse off any of the residual yogurt or dairy on the lid; any food waste can mess up the recycling process. And because of its size, you should crumple it up and toss it into an aluminum can so it doesn’t jam a machine or get lost on its way to the recycling center.
