Aluminum Cans

Aluminum cans are one of the most purely recyclable objects in the world. Most are recycled into new aluminum cans. This is known as “Closed-Loop Recycling,” because there’s almost no need for new aluminum in the process. It can take as little as 60 days for a can to move from the recycling bin back to the shelf as a whole new can.
