Soda and food cans should be looked at as natural resources. Currently, we only recycle about 50 percent of the metals we are discarding each year. Metal recycling is one of the best examples of environmental savings. It takes 95% less energy to recycle aluminum than it does to make it from raw materials. Recycling steel and tin cans saves 74% of the energy used to produce them.
You heard it here, we went you to recycle everything you can, but you should DEFINITELY be recycling that metal.
