Aluminum Can Recycle

  1. Save your aluminum cans. Collect your cans and store them up in durable trash bags. Pet food cans as well as beverage cans can be recycled. When in doubt, use a magnet to test for aluminum. A magnet will not stick to aluminum but will stick to steel or other metals.
  2. Drop off at Happy Trails.  Bring your bags to the Happy Trails Sanctuary office and place them beside the office building to the left in the receptacles provided. If you need help, please ask in the office! If the receptacles are full, place your bags in the area beside them.
