What Do I Do With...?

Garbage

Aluminum foil wrap:
Aluminum foil is not recyclable because the foil burns off too quickly in the aluminum smelter causing flares and pitting in the aluminum can sheet. Also moisture and food trapped in the foil causes potential dangerous steam explosions at the smelter. Place this item in the garbage.
