Why Recycle Metal Cans

  • Steel cans may be recycled infinitely with no loss of quality. Unlike glass, paper or plastic, metal is in limited supply, putting extra importance on recycling.
  • Two-thirds of all new steel manufactured comes from recycled steel, meaning one-third must still come from virgin material.
