Christmas recycling tips
Here are a few seasonal steel recycling tips. Use them to encourage friends and family to recycle more during the festive season.
Merry Christmas and many happy returns!
Get recycling this Christmas and enjoy products in containers made from the same steel next Christmas - because steel recycling is a closed loop process, it can be recycled over and over again without any loss of quality.
Think beyond drink
More than 300 million steel cans are used each week over Christmas, but many people may only think to recycle their drinks cans. The fact is lots of other products are made from steel: food cans, biscuit tins, spirits packaging, aerosol cans, deodorants, bottle tops, caps and much more.
Keep it clean
Ensure all your steel packaging is rinsed out before being recycled.
In the know
Don't get caught out - check your recycling collection schedules over Christmas.
Cleaning the house for guests?
Remember to recycle your steel cleaning product containers, such as aerosol polishes and tins of wax cleaners.
Don't yet recycle?
Make it a New Year's resolution... starting NOW! Recycling is one of the most important things you can do to preserve natural resources and protect the environment.
Spread good cheer...
AND the recycling message this Christmas!
