to cansmart® - the steel can recycling website.
94% of households in Australia now have access
to steel can recycling with 56% of steel cans being returned for recycling.
However, every year each Australian sends around 3.5 kilograms of steel
cans to landfill - that's enough steel to make 40,000 fridges!
Recycling steel cans helps to protect our environment in three ways:
It saves precious natural resources
2. It saves energy
3. Reduces cans going to landfill
The cansmart® website is dedicated to promoting steel
We have information for householders, waste educators, manufacturers and
marketers and students. You can find everything from a Householder's Guide to
Steel Can Recycling, to the new Recyclable Steel Logo which brand owners can
download and incorporate directly into their labelling.
