What is Cansmart?


cansmart® is an initiative of the Steel Can Recycling Council.

The Steel Can Recycling Council is an industry body dedicated to promoting steel can recycling in Australia. The Steel Can Recycling Council was established in 1996 to encourage consumers to send their steel cans to recycling rather than to landfill.
