Aluminum cans make up just a small section of the overall waste stream. However, the resale value of aluminum pound-by-pound, is the highest of all recyclables. Used beverage cans have the highest resale value compared to food grade aluminum such as aluminum foil, aluminum pet food cans, or aluminum pie plates. For many organizations, aluminum can equate to 25% of their total revenues from all recyclables, adding to their profitable recycling business. Some recycling centers have reported selling a half-ton aluminum bale for $550.
The ideal way to have aluminum cans ready for pickup or delivery is to have them baled with a vertical baler. After the aluminum cans are baled, they can be easily stacked and stored for processing.
One of the great things about aluminum cans, is that they can be recycled over and over again!
