Tip: Aluminum Trays and Pans Are Recyclable November 13, 2016 Email 11-13-2016 With winter holidays and celebrations approaching, a lot of us are beginning to plan our favorite holiday meals and treats to share — breads, pies, turkeys, casseroles. While you do this, keep in mind that aluminum trays and pans are recyclable. Just make sure you wash or scrape the food off before tossing them in the recycling. Aluminum trays and pans are also reusable — you can wash and reuse them for cooking or baking multiple times, or you can repurpose them to store crafting materials or garage items. They can also be used as a tray or saucer to catch water from a household plant. Thinking long-term? A less wasteful option would be to invest in a reusable tray or pan that is easily transportable.
