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.
