Why does my garbage company bust up my aluminum trash can?

Our garbage company notoriously busts up my aluminum garbage can. We use plastic due to this.

What should we do?

    Ummm... should be obvious you need to stick with plastic/rubber cans.  The machines they use to pick them up nowadays probably crush an aluminum can, which won't snap back, whereas the good ol' Rubbermaid container shrugs it off.
