Bigfoot Recycling

Help save the planet's resources by recycling aluminum cans at one of our clean and frienldy loctions.

The aluminum can is infinitely recyclable – that means it can be used, recycled, and turned back into a new can endlessly. In fact, it can be recycled and back on the store shelf as a new beverage can in less than 60 days! And that’s great for the environment because it takes 95% less energy to make a can from recycled aluminum, than from raw materials. By recycling aluminum cans, we’re also saving valuable space in our landfills.

Aluminum Recycling Facts:
  • Recycling 1 ton of aluminum cans conserves the equivalent of 1,665 gallons of gasoline
  • Used aluminum beverage cans are the most recycled item in the U.S., but other types of aluminum, such as siding, gutters, car components, storm window frames, and lawn furniture can also be recycled.
