 Aluminum foil, plates and containers


Recycle aluminum foil, pie tins and tin plates and takeout containers:

  • In your blue cart
  • At a community recycling depot

Special instructions

  • Rinse off any food residue and crumple the foil into a ball before recycling.
  • If foil is covered in lots of oil, grease, meat juices etc. that cannot be cleaned put in your black cart as garbage.
  • Put foil food seals (e.g. such as yogurt tubs) in your black cart as garbage. They are made out of aluminum and plastic, which cannot be recycled.
