Recycling cans saves between 60 to 74% of the energy used to produce them from raw materials.
See aerosol can, aluminium can and tin can for more information on the manufacture, recycling, as well as social and environmental justice implications of cans.
Ensure cans are clean before recycling at the Whanganui Resource Recovery Centre.
Large catering cans can be put in the scrap metal bin.
Please recycle rather than send to landfill.
