How to Recycle Metal Jar Lids?

Answer

Most recycling centers will take metal jar lids. Make sure they are cleaned of food and separated from the jar they were once attached to. If you do not have a recycling center near you, or your center does not take metal lids, you can reuse them. Many jars and lids are inter-changeable, so you can find another jar even if you don't have the original. Use them to store leftovers or juice. You could also make some creative craft projects out of them.
