Aluminium can recycling. View of stacked bales of crushed aluminium beverage cans awaiting recycling. The bales seen here contain over 1 million cans. Recycling schemes for aluminium are attractive as refining the metal from its ores is very energy intensive. In many states of the USA, a small payment is made on cans presented for recycling. This photograph was taken at the Alcoa Recycling plant at Edison, New Jersey, USA.
