    What if a metal lid has that rubbery-plasticy coating inside? What is that stuff, and does it affect recycling? Should we tear it out?
    • Jessica J. 1 year ago
      Don't worry, the rubbery or plastic lining, as well as labels, will burn off during the recycling process when the metal is melted for recycling.

    i have concerns about the material handlers. what should be done with the top of a can when you open it with a can opener
    • Sue S. 1 year ago
      I share your concern so after I have rinsed the food off the lid and out of the can and let them dry, I put the lid back into the bottom of the can where it seems to stay pretty well. I've seen recyclers watch mixed recyclables pass in front of them on conveyor belts where they sort things as they go by so there isn't a lot of handling so hopefully not much cutting either.
