Steel Can Recycling
Steel is the world’s most recycled material. Steel packaging is used for drink cans, food and petfood cans, paint cans, aerosols and containers of many other household and industrial products.
Reclaim collects around 100 tonnes of aluminium and steel cans each month and arranges for this to be made into new products. If we are not yet collecting your aluminium and steel cans please get in touch with us. By recycling your aluminium and steel you will reduce your cost of waste to landfill and ensure that an important resource is not wasted.
Breakdown of recyclables we can claim from steel can waste.

Steel cans are the easiest type of packaging to recycle as they can be
picked out of the garbage and recycling waste by magnetic separation.
Each steel can is 100% recyclable. It can be recycled over and over again into new products like, bikes and of course new steel cans.
Steel cans, often called tin cans, have only a very thin layer of tin - 15 millionths of an inch thick to prevent corrosion – thinner than the skin of a soap bubble.
Reclaim provides a convenient service for the collection of recyclable containers: plastic bottles, aluminium cans, steel cans, glass bottles and glass jars.
