For the past 4 or 5 years I have been recycling all the steel cans from work! I work in a kitchen and we go through a lot of cans! Soup,suaces,pie fillings,olives,canned veggies and canned fruit are some of the food we get in cans. We used to have a recycling dumpster by the garage dumpsters! When we needed another garage dmpster so there went the recycling one! I have been trying to get one back by the college I work at is being cheap and won't get one at this time! So I recycle all the cans! I get a little money recycling the steel cans but I know I'm doing a good thing! If I didn't the steel cans would end up in a landfill takening up space it shouldn't be! When I go to the recycling center I take an like 145 to over 160 pounds a trip! I go at least twice a month! I could fill a landfill with all the cans I recycle!

That's good of you. I bring my client's cans/cardboard/plastics home to my recycling bin, its not a lot and barely a scratch on the surface of the trash that goes out at her apartment complex, but its something I can do.

Well done! you hv a good intention of protect your work environment. If everybody follows the same way to recycle all can be recycled all over the wordwild , the earth would be protected very well. That would be helpful to avoid serious environment pullution.

Yes I wish more people would do what I do! I see so many adults who don't do it and just don't care! I see that alot at the college I work at! There are so many students who don't care and don't recycle! They don't get it! I do and will keep on doing it!

I've been recycling aluminum cans for a while and recently I started saving the steel cans. I can imagine you probably get a ton of them saved up working at a kitchen. I wish I had a way to get a lot of them like you can. I'm thinking of asking around to see if anyone would be willing to save them for me.
