Sorting Your Aluminum Cans Creates Money

Orcas Exchange Recycling Aluminum Cans

What’s wrong with this picture?

This is a photograph that was recently taken at the Orcas Recycling bins. Note the large amount of aluminum cans mixed in with the other co-mingled material. With the recent developments in the recycling industry, ORS continually faces significant price increases.

With a little forethought, the person who threw these cans into the co-mingled bin could have source-separated them. We offer a separate bin for beer and soda cans and the best part…ORS gets paid for them! The next time you drop your recycling off, please consider separating your aluminum cans.  The attendant would be happy to let you know where to deposit them.
