The Metal Can Association is focused on increasing our metal can recycling rate.

To achieve this, the Association works closely with brand owners, councils, householders and media.

Brand owners play a vital role in the communication to the consumer and can help by ensuring that the recyclable logos are on all metal can products.

The importance of recycling information on packaging cannot be underestimated.  Consumer research suggests that over 50% of consumers get their recycling information from packaging - the rest from their local council, the internet and friends.
