How CFK Works
Schools and youth organizations are provided with large containers for their collected aluminum cans. Once the containers are full, Cans for Kids picks up the collected cans and drops them off at Wastenot Ltd.'s premises. Cans for Kids also has drop-off locations throughout the island where the general public can bring their aluminum cans - see CFK Locations.
Once the cans arrive at Wastenot Ltd., they are sent through a densifier. The densifier crushes the cans into 2 foot cubes called "briquettes". The briquettes are then shipped to a major aluminum recycling plant in the U.S.
Some tips on how to prepare the cans for recycling:
1) Empty can of product
2) Ensure can is free of contaminants (e.g. cigarette butts, straws, all plastics, napkins, dirt, stones, etc.)
3) Drop off your cans in plastic bags
Note: Cans for Kids accepts aluminum cans ONLY. Cans made from tin or other metals will not be accepted.
