Aluminium FoilReduce - YesRe-use - YesRecycle - Yes

Aluminium foil can be reused. If you are careful you can wash it and reuse it. Include it as part of your washing up so you don't waste water.

After it can no longer be re-used, aluminium foil can be recycled.

There are local opportunities however it cannot be included in your kerbside collection.

You can bring foil to The Green Centre but please bring at least a carrier bag full.  The aluminium foil MUST BE CLEAN. Alternatively take your cleaned foil to a local scrap dealer and cash in to raise funds for yourself or a charity. Approximately £36 million worth of aluminium is landfilled every year!

The local scrap metal company that The Green Centre only for aluminium foil is Geo.E.Richardson & Sons Ltd. For more details please contact them on 01273 570246. Alternatively click here to find a local centre.

If You Care make 100% recycled aluminium foil. When producing recycled aluminium 95% less energy is used than when producing primary aluminium.
