The first is ­multiple-stream recycling, in which recyclables are separated into several bins. 2 A reverse vending machine. , http://www. html. ) The list of accepted recyclables varies, but always includes metal scrap. Cardboard, glass, paper, and plastics may also have their own separate blue bag. A more common scheme is dual-stream recycling, which provides one blue bag for containers (including aluminum cans) and a second for other recyclables. The third type of presort is single-stream recycling, in which all recyclables are placed into a single blue bag.

However, this changed in the early 1970s, due to several reasons: • Governments, noticing the increasing prevalence of aluminum cans in roadside litter, began enacting legislation banning or restricting the use of aluminum beverage containers. A common legislative initiative was to require payment of a deposit on each beverage container purchased and refundable when the empty container was returned (Gitlitz, 2003; Woehlke, 2011). As a response, the aluminum industry began developing infrastructure and technology specifically for collecting and recycling UBCs (Broughton, 1994).

The aluminum cans in the garbage are particularly important in this regard, since they represent more than 20% of the total value of the recyclables, despite being less than 2% of the garbage (Aluminum Association, 1998; Das and Hughes, 2006). In practice, MRFs have not always been as successful as originally envisioned (Reid, 2002). Low prices for recyclables, and lower-than-anticipated landfilling costs, have made many MRFs in North America unprofitable, and some have been closed or curtailed.
