Recycling Aluminium Cans

Why Recycle Aluminium Cans?

Recycling aluminium cans has a number of significant environmental benefits including reducing litter, reducing landfill and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

Recycling just one aluminium can saves enough electricity to power a TV set for 3 hours and making cans from recycled aluminium uses 95% less energy than making them from scratch.  This represents a huge reduction in greenhouse gas emissions and help combat climate change!
