Aluminium Cans

Aluminium Waste

ntrs collects and receives aluminium cans from all over the territory for recycling

aluminium_cansntrs operates an aluminium can press which compresses cans into blocks of aluminium. This is the prefered form in which smelters like to receive materials for recycling.

  • Recycling aluminium cans saves 95% of the total energy to produce new cans from raw material
  • The energy saved by recycling one aluminium drink can is enough to run a television for 3 hours
  • The energy saved from one tonne of aluminium cans would run an average home for 10 years

Container Deposit Scheme

Territorians can now get 10 cents back in their pockets for each eligible container collected by taking clean, empty cans, bottles and cartons to ntrs Collection Depots.
