This goes in your recycling cart.
A light rinse may be all it takes to remove food. Otherwise, thoroughly rinse to remove heavy residue. No need to remove labels.
Reduce and Reuse
Buy only what you need to limit excess that will become waste.
Create upcycled craft projects such as decorative lanterns, flower vases, bird feeders, or colorful ornaments.
If the aluminum or steel cans are in usable condition, consider gifting to someone who might want to use them for a craft project through your local Buy Nothing group.
