About the Aluminium Can Recycling Campaign

Aluminium Cans © Amy Nancarrow

The Aluminium Can Recycling Campaign, established in 2002, aims to encourage Australians to consider the positive environmental benefits of recycling. 

Recycling a single aluminium can saves enough energy to run a TV for 3 hours and making items from recycled aluminium uses 95% less energy then making them from scratch.  Recycling also diverts items from landfill and reduces litter.

Australia has a high rate of aluminium can recycling, however, around one in three cans is not recycled.  

This campaign aims to increase the number of cans being recycled. 

Major Sponsor - The Aluminium Can Group

ACG is the industry association representing the aluminium can manufacturing industry in Australia
