Recycling


Recycling

It only takes 5% of the energy used to create an aluminium can to recycle it and bring it back into use. The amount of waste we recycle is increasing and it is estimated that some 25% of household rubbish is recycled, the equivalent of taking 35 million cars off the road. There is still room for improvement; in Austria and Germany some 50% of household rubbish is recycled - equivalent of 7 million cars.
