In Cuba everything is recycled. There is no social conscience involved. Its survival. Everything is in short supply.
Aluminum cans are picked out of gutters and trash bins because they have value. However, they’re not worth what they are in the U.S. Recycling approximately 200 cans will get a Cuban only one Peso. That’s about one U.S. nickel.
One Cuban gentleman demonstrated his method. He carries around this heavy iron “doughnut” with a home-made handle and flattens the cans.
