Is there any waste when a can is recycled?

    Well, you can think of the process for recycling a can to see what waste is associated with it. At some point, the can has to travel to a recycling plant so there is an impact or some waste associated with that. It could mean putting the can in your curbside recycling that gets picked up by recycling trucks that run on fossil fuel. It could also be recycling at a grocery store that ultimately has the cans shredded and picked up by a company. It takes energy to recycle a can so there is waste. There’s less impact than not recycling that can, but the best solution is to recycle when possible but consume less overall.
