Aluminum Shortage Due to COVID-19

According to USA TODAY:
"Beverage companies have been hit with a shortage of aluminum cans as soft drink and beer consumption has shifted from restaurants to homes amid the corona virus pandemic. Can makers weren’t prepared for drink consumption to shift from fountain service in restaurants to home consumption."

Recently in the news, because of the shift in consumption locals for public to in-home some wineries are now CANNING (not kidding and not as of yet grossed out) wines in two serving sizes for one of a couple instead of a bottle that might have normally been shared among several friends.

Non-carbonated beverages like ICED TEA, which are not under pressure, are being sold in cans so thin that just lifting them one must have a light touch.

IF you are already a devoted recycler and have lots of cans that need to go, please take them to recycling now. IF you haven't been recycling please start now, it's not hard in-the-least. You can reuse those grocery store plastic bags to hold your crushed cans.

Recycling spares the earth from more vigorous aggressive mining for the raw materials, in addition to the energy saved but not mining anew, recycling cans in to molten raw aluminum to be made into new cans uses a fraction of the energy to refine ore.

The place to RECYCLE Aluminum (and plastic, paper--see list) in Henry County is at the COUNTY ROAD BARN, 714 Property Rd., New Castle.

Cleaning/Recycling Suggestion
making it a little easier to hook-up with the right charity

PLEASE CHECK AHEAD
Due to the Corona Virus 19 A&E many places are not taking donations other than food banks.
INDEED, many stores are not accepting returns of merchandise either.
ASK FIRST.

DONATION TOWN, Louisville Area.

What is "Donationtown.org"

"Donation Town is the internet’s best resource for donating clothing and other household goods to charity.

"We started developing this website in September 2008 as an online directory of charities that offer donation pick up service. It became apparent that people needed a resource devoted entirely to the charitable donations of clothing and other household goods. There are plenty of great websites out there that focus on donating money to charity, but practically no websites devoted to the donation of non-cash items. DonationTown.org is here to change that!"
