Aluminium Can Recycling
Recycling aluminium requires only 5% of the energy and produces only 5% of the CO2 emissions as compared with primary production and reduces the waste going to landfill. Aluminium can be recycled indefinitely, as reprocessing does not damage its structure. Aluminium is also the most cost-effective material to recycle.
Reclaim collects around 100 tonnes of aluminium and steel cans each month and arranges for this to be made into new products. If we are not yet collecting your aluminium and steel cans please get in touch with us. By recycling your aluminium and steel you will reduce your cost of waste to landfill and ensure that an important resource is not wasted.

Aluminium is a key resource to recover and it makes sense to recycle cans, they are light and can easily be crushed for transportation.
Its refreshing to know that the next aluminium can you drink from could well come back years down the track and hold another soft drink for you.
