Why You Shouldn't Crush an Aluminum Can Before Recycling It

This just makes me want to crush my cans more. Post-consumer recycling is a money pit for state and local governments. They lose money on it, but they won't stop, because it makes them "look good".

So I do my part to make the process even more unprofitable for them, in the hopes that one day they'll cut their losses and quit.
