You can separate aluminum and steel by getting a magnet, and by putting it against the can and seeing if it sticks or not. I f it sticks, its steel. If it doesn't its aluminum. And well... milk jugs and soda bottles, you can clearly tell that soda bottles are bottles with soda in it, and milk jugs are jugs with milk in it.
