    Aluminum melts at 1221 degrees F. When aluminum is recycled it must be melted to be reformed, and in that process little if any contaminating material survives. So lining or coating of the metal makes no difference at all in the recycling of aluminum cans, yogurt lids or anything else. The reason the lids and cans should be rinsed and cleaned it hygiene and care for the people who work in recycling facilities. They don't deserve having to work with stinky, possibly disease contaminated materials. Other than that, cans, yogurt (and other) lids, wine bottle twist-offs, wine bottle neck collars (those that aren't plastic) and the like are recyclable. The lids and caps and other such material should be saved by the consumer until a large-ish mass is accumulated. Be sure the recycler (trash hauler or similar) will take balled-up aluminum in the stream. You should also be able to recycle aluminum siding, gutters, storm window frames, and lawn furniture.

    Just think. If we threw all of our trash in our backayrds, it will change the way we dispose of things and recycle more. It is surprising how much trash we produce erry single day.

    One day we will be able to recycle 90% of our garbage like Europe does. I hope I live to see it.

    I'm not here for the points, I'm here to learn how to get closer to zero waste. The points are nice, though. Thank you.
