Recycling Tin Cans

Category Metal

Recycle your cans. Tin and steel cans save a lot of energy if they are recycled. Reclaiming one ton of steel or tin saves 1.5 tons of ore. Tin recycling saves an estimated 2,600 kilowatt hours per ton. Steel recycling saves and average of 4,300 kilowatt hours per ton or 47% of the energy required to process steel from raw materials.

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.

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

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?

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.

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

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

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.
