You can put the following metal items in the recycle bin together with glass and hard plastic:
- Empty soda and beer cans (preferably crushed, as they take up less space this way)
- Tins, if rinsed clean
- Aluminium trays, but only if clean
- Bottle tops
- Jar lids
- Aluminium tea light candle cups (a small amount of candle wax is allowed)
- Clean aluminium foil (scrunched up)
Remember - it's a person just like you who is sorting the recyclables by hand, so please make sure they are clean to ensure a clean and healthy work environment.
We can save 90-97 % energy by recycling aluminium instead of extracting new aluminium.
Every year in Denmark alone we throw 13.500 tons of aluminium straight into the bin. That's aluminium enough to produce 5 million bicycles - almost one for every Dane!
