|Crushing aluminum cans
takes up less space in your recycling bin. This can crusher is easy
to make and could be a fun project for the kids to help with.
- 2 pieces of scrap 2"x4"s, about
- 1 sturdy strap hinge and screws
- 2 low-profile jar lids
- 2 short screws
- 1 heavy-duty screen door handle
Look at the diagram to see how to put
the crusher together. The jar lids will prevent the can from
slipping out. The cans will crush easier if you bend the sides in
slightly with a squeeze.
