Material: Food tins and drinks cans
Food tins and drinks cans are made out of aluminium or steel. These materials can be recycled over and over again into new products.
Aluminium and steel cans can be recycled multiple times and can be made into many different products including bicycle frames, pipes, train tracks, ship hulls, cars, bridges, paperclips, food and drinks cans, window frames, road signs or even parts of cars!
All of our aluminium and steel is sent to reprocessors in the UK to be manufactured into new metal items.
Did you know – Recycling 1kg of aluminium can save up to 6kg of bauxite, 4kg of chemical products and 14kWh of electricity.
