What Happens to Recycled Aluminum Cans

More than 80% of the cans sold in BC are returned for recycling. These cans are baled, melted and back on the shelf again as cans within 6 weeks. This saves a lot of raw material, plus it takes 95% less energy to manufacture a new can from recycled aluminum than it does to make it from brand new material.
