How to completely empty and recycle an aluminum tube.
1. Roll the contents toward the cap with a bottle as you use it up.

2. Keep the tube rolled or leaks may develop.

3. Wrap the flattened end around a pencil then slide this out for a wrinkle-free seal.

4. Here's another tube ready to be recycled inside an aluminum can. Remove and discard the plastic cap.
