/ recycling aluminium foil
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!
Food / Drink cans
Biscuit / Sweet tins
Clean aluminium foil
Aluminium recycling facilities in York are very scarce - I know that we (and when I say we, I mean S) goes out of his way to take aluminium to the one place that actually has a facility - I will check with him which one it is!!
Next to Wickes at Clifton Moor apparently.
The main recycling place on James Street doesn't have any aluminium recycling
We used to have a big jar in the kitchen to put foil in when I was a kid, and it went to the local Girl Guides I seem to remember. God knows what they did with it all, but I presume it got recycled for charity via them, unless they spent a lot of time making robot outfits with it.
My wife and her sister both refuse to wash or wipe them up when we visit on the ground that they're not being party to such frugal actions.
I re-use freezer bags that hold bread rolls - but they stay in the freezer.
We just reuse them without washing them - heh heh heh.....
