Aluminium Recycling

Aluminium is collected for recycling at the WRRC.

The cans are then bailed on site and sold to a local scrap dealer.

 

From here they make their way overseas to numerous treatment plants.

 

Here the aluminium is sorted and cleaned, then re-melted, this removes all coatings and inks.

 

Next the aluminium is made into ingots – each ingot contains about 1.6 million cans!

 

The ingots are then rolled out into sheets and turned back into cans.
