The most common metal recyclable found in every home is aluminum. Soda cans, food cans, aluminum foil, bakeware, and more are common pantry/kitchen items that can be recycled for infinite use. Tin and steel are additional metals used for soup cans, coffee cans, and other types of food containers. These too can be recycled at a metal recycling center.
Another popular, but less obvious, metal to recycle includes copper. Old electronics, cell phones, computers, laptops, tablets, cameras, radios, televisions, speakers, GPS units, monitors, computer keyboards, CPU’s, copper wiring, and more are all recyclable and reusable! We all have our old flip phones from back in the day, and we can now put them to good use, finally! There’s no sense in leaving them in a junk drawer for the next five years, rendering them useless and adding to the clutter.
Aside from electronics, old equipment and appliances made from metals are also great choices for recycling. This includes printers, photocopiers, fax machines, microwaves, stoves, toasters, refrigerators, dishwashers, power tools, construction equipment, fire alarms, smoke detectors, car batteries, automotive parts, and more. Talk to your local metal recycling center for additional information about recycling metal at home.
