    Recycling metal pouches from kids drinks (Capri Sun)/applesauce/baby food, etc.

    I was wondering if anyone knew where I could take the little metal pouches from kids juice drinks (like Capri Sun), applesauce, baby food, etc. for recycling...

    Somewhere near Dallas/Mesquite/Garland would be preferable.

    Thanks for your help!

    I would think they are mostly plastic with a foil lining.

    Are you asking about just common usage amounts or say like from a school or such?

    It would take tons of this to make it worth while .....

    It's not about the money, just looking to have a zero waste home. Just wondering if anyone knew of somewhere I could take these to recycle them.

    Oh I see you want to just be "green" I admire your thoughts but...

    Being green is more to do with not buying such wasteful items to start with and not post product action.

    This stuff comes from a fruit and or vegetable lets go back to nature and stop buying over priced juice in a bag mentality.

    If you want to help our Mother, Earth that is just stop! Stop all the madness of prepackage crap!!
