HOW TO RECYCLE ALUMINUM
Aluminum is a 100% recyclable and sustainable metal. Aluminum can be turned over from a store shelf to the recycling bin and back to the store shelf in as little as 60 days. Every minute, 123,097 aluminum cans, or 2 out of every 3 cans, are recycled. Aluminum is one of the only recyclables that more than pays for its own recycling. Because of the sustainable nature of aluminum, the size and economic impact of the aluminum recycling industry is notable, with more than 155,000 workers directly employed in the industry and 3.3 additional supporting positions created for each worker directly employed.
We’re All in for Aluminum!
Aluminum began to be mass marketed in the United State in the early 1900s, in applications such as packaging and foil. Nearly 75% of all aluminum produced in the U.S. in the last 100 years remains in use. Companies that utilize aluminum in their packaging have been shown to have a competitive advantage due to attracting consumer goodwill. Aluminum is valued by consumers for its ease of use, safety, convenience, lightness of weight and durability. The highly printable surface of aluminum easily accepts paint and coatings, making it ideal for brand identification and visual appeal.
Making Sense of Recycling by the Numbers
• Recycling is a key operation in the aluminum industry, with the United States and Canada recycling more than 5 million tons of aluminum annually. • Aluminum recycling is 92% more energy efficient than producing new aluminum, making recycling both business and environmentally friendly. • A 10% increase in recycling aluminum at the end of its life decrease greenhouse gas emissions by 15%. • Nearly 40% of the North American supply of aluminum is created through recycling processes, increasing from 30% in the early 1990s. • Producing aluminum from recycled metal conserves more than 90% of the energy required for the primary production of aluminum. • 20 aluminum cans can be recycled with the same amount of energy it takes to create just one can from virgin ore. With all of the encouraging statistics about aluminum recycling, it is disheartening to learn that every three months, enough aluminum is thrown into landfills to rebuild the entire commercial air fleet of the United States. 36 billion cans, with a commercial value of more than $600 million were thrown into landfills last year.
