Aluminum is a particularly common type of nonferrous metal that has a great deal of value as a recyclable. Not only is aluminum used in a huge variety of everyday products, it can be melted down and recycled over and over again— there is nearly an infinite recycling potential when it comes to aluminum products!
This metal is lightweight and can reflect light so well that it is often used in green cooling technologies. Aluminum has a high level of conductivity, it’s very durable, and it can be used in many different ways. The versatility of aluminum also means that it can be found in almost every household and business facility, and disposing of aluminum scraps is a problem that many encounter every day.

At Intonu, we accept aluminum from both individuals and businesses alike. Whether you’re just looking for a place to get extra cash for your cans, or you’re shopping around for a large-scale aluminum recycling plan, we’re here to help.
In the United States, 30% of aluminum products have recycled scrap to thank for their existence. If more of us recycled, that number could be significantly higher; the recycling process of aluminum does not alter the material in any such way that inhibits it from being recycled indefinitely. Aluminum recycling more than pays for itself, and allows for the manufacturing of brand new products from scrapped ones, as opposed to taking more time, energy, and funds to create new products from raw materials.
In order to be processed, aluminum scraps are collected and sorted at a dedicated facility. These scraps can begin as beverage cans, home remodeling waste, car and computer parts, and more. From there, environmentally sound practices are employed to ensure that as much energy as possible is being saved and that the aluminum is dealt with in a way that doesn’t harm the environment. The aluminum is broken down, often by shredding, and heated until it is a liquid. This liquid is then poured into designated molds, depending on how and where the aluminum is going to be used. Manufacturing facilities receive the aluminum and can put new products on consumer shelves in a surprisingly short amount of time.
