The CANZBAC website is dedicated to promoting steel and aluminium can recycling.
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.
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
