Consequently, can you recycle cans and bottles together?
By putting the lids/caps back on glass jars and bottles it reduces the chance of them getting lost through the sorting process. The plastic ring joiners that come with multi-packs of drinks cans can be recycled together with plastic film and carrier bags at collection points of larger supermarkets.
Consequently, how do you recycle cans and bottles for money?
Glass Bottles and Aluminum Cans In states with bottle bills, you can redeem many of the cans and bottles you buy for cash, usually 5 to 10 cents a bottle. You pay the deposit when you buy the product, so redeeming these empties is a great way to recycle, while putting a little change back in your pocket.
The Case For and Against Cans You probably know this already, but cans are a lot lighter than bottles. That means they have a smaller carbon footprint than glass (as noted above), but also that they take less cardboard to hold and transport. Furthermore, cans are made with much more recycled content than glass bottles.
