Recycling aluminium uses only 5% of the energy required to process aluminium from its raw ore, Bauxite. CO2 emissions are also drastically cut with recycling, releasing only 5% of the CO2 released when processing from Bauxite. Aluminium’s high value per tonne compared to other waste materials ensures that there are many commercial operations set up to collect and recycle aluminium.
We are a member of the Aluminium Packaging Recycling Organisation (Alupro). Alupro is a not-for-profit company that represents the leading aluminium packaging producers and reprocessors in the UK. Alupro’s role is to ensure that packaging waste recycling targets are met through working with local authorities and other partners, and through public education. Alupro is also the body responsible for working with the government on recycling policy issues.
