The Steel Can Recycling Council was established in 1996 to encourage consumers to send their steel cans to recycling rather than to landfill.
Australia currently has a steel can recycling rate of 56%. The Steel Can Recycling Council is working towards increasing this to 65% in line with the new National Packaging Covenant Steel Packaging Target.
To meet this target, the Steel Can Recycling Council works with local, state and federal government, recycling contractors, can manufacturers, marketers, retailers, media and the general public.
