In many households, there are tons of cans. Many of these cans are aluminum which is a metal that can easily and readily be recycled. However, if you go through a lot of aluminum cans such as soda cans or beer cans, you just might want to get a can crusher to help you deal with the recycling.
Face it. Empty soda or beer cans will take up a lot of space in the kitchen. A can crusher can go a long way toward minimizing that space used to hold the empties. But what else can a can crusher do for you? Here are three good reasons for you to get your own crushing device.
First off, a can crusher can be fun to use. If you have kids they will enjoy using it and watching the cans go poof! into small crushed up chunks of aluminum. Of course, we are talking younger children here who take a delight in everything. You will have to watch children this age as they use the can crusher but at least you aren’t doing the job.
If the kids are older and already at that don’t-want-to stage for anything you want them to do around the house, just tell them how much faster a crusher makes the job of crushing go. Probably you will end up just telling them to get to it but you know you made their task easier.
Secondly, a crushing device will help you save room as mentioned above. Many municipals do require recycling which means you have to store your empties until the recycle truck comes around. How often does that happen in your area? Most often it’s only once a week. Save some room in your home or garage by smushing the cans to be sent off.
Third, without having all those open empty cans sitting around somewhere taking up space, you are also removing the potential home for pests. Just think of all the bugs that are attracted by something sweet left open. You know there’s always a couple drops left in every can. Keep the cockroaches and fruit flies and who knows what else away by keeping your kitchen cleaner. No sticky open cans lying around.
So there you go. Three quick reasons to be sure to add a can crusher to your home. Remove nuisances, save space and have fun.
