Recycling of any product is helpful to the environment. When you recycle an object less energy is consumed than that of producing the same new object. The same way recycling aluminum cans is also very beneficial to the environment. It reduces the litter, there is reduction in landfill and also there is reduction in greenhouse gas emission.
There are number of characteristics of aluminum that contribute for the safety of environment. They are:
1. Aluminum cans are 100% recyclable.  When these containers are opened in one the piece the whole container can be recycled.
2. Recycling just one can saves enough electricity to power 3 TV sets.
3. While making a new can from recycled can 95% less energy is used compared to raw material, this represents huge reduction in greenhouse gas emission.
4. As they are light in weight and can be easily crushed if you don’t find a recycle bin they can be taken home easily.
5. As they are light weighted and compact it is easy to transport them.
6. Over the past 25 years aluminum cans have become about 30% lighter. Thinner, stronger sections are now being used with less metal, less energy and more savings in weight. An average aluminum can (without its contents, of course) weighed 16.55 grams in 1992. By 2005 the aluminum can weighed about 14.7 grams.
