I'm a senior in high school and working with an eight grade science class, who is starting a recycling program in our school district and surrounding areas. We live a a very rural area in Southwestern Missouri and we would like some ideas from anything from buyers to resources.

4000 aluminum cans = 400 pounds. 400 * $0.50 = 200 dollars.

How much money would I get if I sold 4000 aluminium cans to a recycling company?

I wonder what tin is made of? TIN?
Editor's Note: According to Wikipedia it is an element. It is a silvery, malleable poor metal that is not easily oxidized in air and resists corrosion. Tin cans contain a thin coating of tin.

What happens to the can after they are crushed. Do they get melted down and made into new cans or is recycling a waste of time and energy?

When recycling cans, do you need to take the paper off of them?

How do you recycle tin cans? Is it hard or easy?
By natalie (Guest Post)11/08/2007
What do they do with the tin cans, is it used to make anything else?

Why would you want to disintegrate a tin can? Why wouldn't you just recycle it?

I hate to ask a dumb question, but what type of cans are steel? I know soda cans are aluminum and soup cans are steel, so what are tin?
Editor's Note: All steel cans are coated (plated) with tin. I believe cans may have been all tin at one time but now they are only tin coated. So they are both steel and tin cans.

It's roughly 0.12 million tonnes / year. Here i'm talking about pure tin metal.

Do you know any buyers of tin cans in Florida. I have about 115 tons of tin cans and need them recycled.

According to: http://www.goerie.com/nietalkintrash/talkin__trash.html
It takes 100 years for a tin can to disintegrate.
