Question about recycling the alum foil box

Is it necessary to pull off the cutter? It usually pulls off without problems. But do you really have to take it off?

I always took it off.  It's not cardboard.

It took a while, but I finally found an answer online.  You do need to remove the cutter.  Some facilities might take it off while sorting, but others may not.  So, to ensure it actually is recycled, it's best to remove it yourself.

I'm lazy. I throw everything in as is. :(

I'm assuming that the cutter is made out of alum. Wonder if I should recycle it with alum cans?

Me too.  I honestly never thought about it.  The only recycling tip I have learned is to remove the caps on plastics(like the cap of a milk jug) and also jar lids, because for whatever reason, they do not recycle those here.
