RECYCLE ALUMINUM AND PLASTIC
Simply take your cans to one of our collection locations or a participating school or programme of your choice. Funds are used toward updating playground equipment/recreational areas, the purchase of technical equipment, art and book supplies, and environmental clubs. Cans For Kids (raising funds for kids and awareness for recycling through aluminium can recycling) recycles aluminum soda cans, individual juice cans, power drink cans and beer cans only. In order to get the best price for cans they must be empty and free of all contaminants (dirt, cigarette butts, straws, plastics, napkins and stones). It is also preferable that cans are collected in a clear plastic bag. Once the cans arrive on WasteNot's site they are processed through a densifier. This densifier crushes the cans into 2-foot cubes called briquettes, which are then ready to be shipped to a major aluminum recycler in the United States. Currently, Cans For Kids pays youth programmes and schools $.30/lb. (this varies according to aluminum prices). All funds raised are paid directly back to the school or youth programme. Bars, hotels and restaurants are encouraged to "adopt" a school or youth programme to donate cans to.
