How are aluminum cans removed from the stream?

Aluminum containers are very valuable to a MRF, and recovery is very important. Due to the lower volume in the mix, the aluminum cans can be removed towards the end of the sorting process. Manual recovery by a picker is common in low volume MRF’s, but the aluminum can be easily sorted using an Eddy Current Separator.
