It’s a win-win really when you get into aluminum can recycling in St. Louis, MO. Not only do you get the financial benefit of making some extra money, but you also get the environmental benefit of cleaning up the Earth and recycling the material for another use while you’re at it. Here’s a quick three step how to guide if you live in the St. Louis, MO area to earning a little extra cash while saving the world with environmentally conscious aluminum can recycling.

  1. Collection Time – It’s not a bad idea to do this with your kids. They love going on a little adventure with you, and you get to teach them a valuable life lesson in the process of how to be environmentally conscious. They’ll like the idea even more when you give them the money you collect for it later on. Grab your child and say we’re going on an adventure to collect aluminum cans to help save the environment. You get to play a sort of eco-friendly super hero this way.
  2. Store ‘Em Up – Save some plastic bins or whatever you can to store all the aluminum cans in your garage. You may need to go on two or three trips with your child to collect cans before you turn them in to make it worth your while. In other words, don’t just turn in a couple of six packs of empty soda cans and expect to retire early from it. Also, keep in mind you may want to wash soda cans out. The sugar residue inside of these cans may attract unwanted ants and/or bees to your home.
  3. Turn ‘Em In – Go to Scrap Mart Metals on West Outer Rd. in Valley Park to turn in your collections. We pay top dollar for not just aluminum cans, but a variety of other materials as well. Please contact us today for more information.
