What is the difference between regular aluminum foil and recyclable aluminum foil?

    Most aluminum foils are recyclable, though they may not actually say that on the box. Some, however, may have some kind of coating that would render it difficult to recycle. I have yet to find one like that. I imagine that a coating on aluminum foil would have to withstand temperatures in excess of the melting point of aluminum (over 1200 degrees Fahrenheit) in order to be allowed on foil for health reasons. After all, you wouldn’t want some unseen plastic substance melting into your food (unless, of course, you like eating unseen plastic substances). Then again, I have never seen a kitchen oven go quite that hot 🙂
