What happens with
Tin Cans
in Teton Valley?

All steel products contain some recycled material—usually at least 25%! Steel never loses quality or strength so it can be endlessly recycled.

Tim cans may be recycled into “new” cans, vehicle parts, toys, appliances (such as refrigerators), fire hydrants, or tools.
