From beverage cans to food containers and even aluminum foil, this versatile metal is highly recyclable and holds immense potential for reducing waste



A blend of copper and zinc, brass is often found in keys, faucets, doorknobs, and decorative pieces around your home.



While less common nowadays due to health concerns, lead can still be found in older pipes, batteries, and specific electronics.


Found in food cans, aerosol cans, appliances, and even furniture, steel is a durable metal that's well-suited for recycling.



Like brass, bronze is an alloy, combining copper with elements like tin. You'll find it in sculptures, decorative items, and hardware.



Tin-plated steel plays a role in food and beverage packaging, showcasing its recyclability



This essential metal finds its place in wiring, plumbing pipes, and various household fixtures. Its high market value adds even more reason to recycle it.
