Power plants running on aluminum cans?

Soda (aluminum) cans would seem to be an almost unlimited renewable resource. That is, one could recycle such left over cans – burning such aluminum in power plants, at a temperature perhaps not so different from coal burning. Less polutants than coal? Also there is an almost unlimited supply of bauxite ore, giving aluminum. If aluminum is good enough for rocket fuel, then why not for power plants?
