Is aluminum foil recyclable?
Yes, aluminum foil can be recycled! Every community’s recycling program is unique so be sure to check your community’s recycling guidelines.
What is the difference between the shiny and dull sides?
This is a common question and the answer is that foil is “milled” in layers during production. Milling is a process whereby heat and tension is applied to stretch the foil to the desired thickness. We mill two layers in contact with each other at the same time. Where the foil is in contact with another layer, that’s the “dull” side. The “shiny” side is the side milled without being in contact with another sheet of metal. The performance of the foil is the same whichever side you use.
