Aluminum is a valuable recyclable because it maintains a high raw material value and it can be recycled back into metal products over and over again. When it comes to aluminum cans and foil, you can recycle both. For beverage cans, it's only necessary to do a light rinse, because the contents are grease-free. As for aluminum foil, you can recycle it as long as it's completely clean of grease and food. So if there's a food substance like cheese baked onto the foil, crumple it up and toss it away.
