Topic - recycling aluminium foil

pebbles - on 31 Jan 2013
When I was a kid loads of people used to collect aluminium foil from chocolate wrappers, cooking foil etc for recycling. It must have been a financially viable process because the foil was collected by a charity and the cash (at least from the charity that collected round our way) was sent to fund guide dog training.
Now glass, plastic, newspaper, cardboard, tin cans are all routinely collected for recycling (even though a lot still ends up in landfill) but you never hear of aluminium foil being collected fro recycling any more. Does anyone know why this is? I'm curious - everyone did it when I was a kid!
