I decided to research how many cans of aluminum are used per minute/per year and then how many of those cans are recycled per minute/per year. The results were quite disappointing considering almost 47 million cans are still not recycled each year. However, world wide the aluminum can recycling rate is 50% which is at least half. I also found out that Americans are wasting approximately $500 million a year by not recycling all aluminum products. I bet if all Americans knew that, everyone would recycle!
