Big profits from Can Recycling


Sure, with therecyclingcreative oftin cansyou can get fashion bags, frames, key rings and a large number of accessories, but when we talk about tons of aluminum, how does therecycling of canson a large scale?

Acan,in theory, it can berecycledendlessly. In the USA, where therecyclingof thetin cansis a consolidated reality for several years, onecanreturns to the supermarket shelf within 60 days of its collection. In short, within a few months one can is consumed, thrown away, collected,recycledand reused by the food industry for large-scale distribution.

Among the most frequently asked questions, they often ask me, "you can earn money with thecollection of cans?”. The answer is yes, but the gain is not related tocanitself, rather than the metal component. You can earn with waste by pocketing the economic value of that disused metal which for aluminum amounts to about 50 euro cents per kilogram, a pretty good evaluation if you consider that a kilogram of paperto recycleit has an economic value of about 0.05 euros. If 0.50 euro seems low to you, think that industrially, a can press can create 200-ton aluminum blocks where each ton is estimated for 500 euro, by doing so, the company can earn 100,000 euro from a component that company considersI decline!

On a small scale, there are presses for cans that supply 1500 kilogram packs of aluminum, providing a profit of 750 euros ... in short, if I were the manager of a bar, I would not hesitate to start a careful collection oftin cansto round up the earnings and thus eliminate the expense of the waste tax which for commercial activities is really exorbitant! Wanting to give an economic value to eachcan dirty and to be thrown away, it can be said that the estimate is around a cent (value referred to following a large approximation, therefore to be evaluated only as a guide).

Therecyclingof thetin cansbrings an even greater environmental gain: with the energy needed to produce a singlecanfrom virgin material, it is possible to produce as many as 20tin cansrecycled.

L'aluminum- in the form of bauxite - it is the most abundant metal on earth, it was discovered in 1820 and its uses have only increased since then.
