How to recycle aluminum foil, plates and containers
Recycle aluminum foil, tin foil, pie tins and tin plates and takeout containers:
- In your blue cart
- At a community recycling depot
- 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.
