Cans (Aluminium)

All aluminium cans are collected for recycling. Aluminium does not degrade during the recycling process and can be recycled endlessly unlike many other materials.  Aluminium is also the most cost-effective material to recycle. Recycling scrap aluminium requires only 5% of the energy used to make new aluminium, producing 95% less air pollution. Tiwai Smelter – which produces new aluminium in NZ, consumes 14% of New Zealand’s power Aluminium cans are baled and then sent to scrap metal dealers.
