Tools For Recycling Aluminum Cans

Updated on March 15, 2011

Here is a list of items that can be helpful when recycling aluminum Cans. You may purchase them from the links on this page. I will try to put links to products and tools as I find them. Be sure to bookmark this page and check back for updates.


This item is helpful to crush cans to save space. It is easier than doing it by foot. There are some that can do multiple cans at once.


 Another useful item is a trash picking stick or pincher. This will help so you do not have to bend over to pick up a can you find. It also helps if you search dumpsters so you do not have to reach in with your hands.


One or more wasp traps come in handy as those cans can attract wasps because of leftover soda and other drinks. If they are not controlled they may attract more wasps and increase the chance of getting stung. A wasp trap can help control them.


Ants will be attracted to the sugar in the drinks that are left over. Even if the can is completly empty there could be traces of the drinks left in the container that ants will be attracted to. One or more ant traps would be helpful to help control them. You could also set out poison they will take straigh to thier nest.

      Every three months, Americans discard enough aluminum to completely rebuild every single commercial airplane in America. Imagine if all people do recycle aluminum cans.
