achieve your recycling and environmental objectives
The UK alone produces over 9 billion aluminium drinks cans every year. Aluminium is the world’s second most used metal. Thanks to effective recycling, 75% of the aluminium ever made is still in productive use today, once recycled aluminium drink cans can be recycled and back on supermarket shelves as new drink cans in as little as 60 days. The energy saved by recycling 1 aluminium drink can is enough to run a television for three hours.
Using a recycling machine that can process cans for collection will benefit your business in various ways. Not only will it help toward achieving your recycling and environmental objectives, by compacting the cans into smaller, manageable bales ready for collection it also helps to minimise the impact on your storage and handling space. Our Mardon RamPack Heavy-duty recycling machinery can compact aluminium cans up to a compaction ratio of 7:1. An additional source of revenue can also be created as recycling companies will often pay for aluminium.
