Recyclability of Aluminum
Metal cans are produced using abundant and recycled materials. The earth’s crust consists of approximately 8% aluminum. With that, it is the third most common element.
Approximately 70% of all aluminum cans are recycled globally, making the can the world’s most recycled packaging product.
Because metals are 100% and infinitely recyclable, they can be reused in various applications to become new products again and again. Metal recycling has been around as long as metals have existed. In fact, nearly 75% of all aluminum ever produced is still in use today.
