Drinking Cans

We currently provide a can recycling service to our customers; this service is FREE when glass and cardboard collections are both provided by us.

We can collect cans for as little as 75p per week if this does not apply.

If possible, we ask that customers separate aluminum and steel cans, and we do require food cans to be thoroughly cleaned prior to collections.

Most soft drink manufacturers are providing aluminum drinks cans, as opposed to steel. As it properties make it far more recyclable than other metals.

Anything made of aluminum can be recycled repeatedly

Not only cans, but aluminum foil, plates and pie moulds, window frames, garden furniture and automotive components are melted down and used to make the same products again.

Used aluminum cans be recycled to make new aluminum cans, aluminum windows can be recycled to make new aluminum windows and old aluminum engine blocks to make new ones.

 

Aluminum Facts

The recycling rate for aluminum cans is already above 70% in some countries. Used beverage cans are normally back on supermarket shelves as new beverage cans in 6-8 weeks in those countries which have dedicated can collecting and recycling schemes.

  • Today's aluminum can requires about 40% less metal than the can made 25 years ago; hence the need for less energy and less raw material per can.
  • Every year 34,000 tonnes of foil and 50,000,000,000 aluminum cans are used in the UK.
  • Recycling just 1 aluminum can saves enough energy to run a TV for 3 hours or a 100watt light bulb for 20 minutes.
  • Recycling 1 kg of aluminum saves 8 kg of bauxite (Aluminum ore), 4 kg of chemical products and 14 kilowatts of electricity.
  • If all the aluminum cans in the UK were recycled there would be 12 million fewer full dustbins each year.
