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.

The Good News
  • 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.

Metal Cans
How Can You Help?
  • Collect and recycle aluminum: soda cans, metal doors.
  • Collect and recycle steel: tin cans, auto parts, appliances.
