Every Can Counts
Every day, Americans use 200 million aluminum and 100 million steel cans. That's enough to rebuild our entire commercial airliner fleet every three months.
Aluminum and steel can be recycled over and over for new products. 95% less energy is used when recycling metal vs. manufacturing from new materials reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Decreases environmental damage caused by mining.
What You Can Do
Collect and recycle aluminum: soda cans, metal doors. Collect and recycle steel: tin cans, auto parts, appliances.
