The CANZBAC website is dedicated to promoting steel and aluminium can recycling.
Use this website to learn more about why steel and aluminium are the world's most recycled materials and how you can play your part in helping us get all those cans back!
New Zealanders use more than 400 million cans each year.
Aluminium and steel cans are 100% recyclable. The average family uses six steel cans each week – but only one of these cans is recycled.
Sending your cans back will:
- Save energy and resources
- Avoid waste and landfill pressure
- Reuse a valuable resource in a sustainable way
