Dispose of Aluminum Foil Right

Aluminum foil and foil pans should not be included in your home or curbside recycling. 


Recycle clean aluminum foil at a local scrap metal yard, along with your other scrap metal items. You may receive a rebate. For a list of scrap metal recyclers, see the Business Locations tab below. You can also search the Yellow Pages online with your zip code.

Some cities allow residents to drop-off scrap metal at their city service department.


The Donation Locations listed below accept donations of aluminum to maintain their facilities or help the organization's mission. See the Business Locations list for area aluminum recyclers.




Looking to recycle, donate or dispose of other items? Use the dark blue 'What Do I Do With?' search bar at the top of every page of this website. Allow location services or use the city drop-down to find opportunities in your local area.
