Local Authority Case Studies

Aluminium beverage cans represent one of the highest value packaging materials commonly collected by local authorities or their appointed contractors. Novelis as a global leader in aluminium recycling and a specialist in closed loop can to can recycling is well placed to support your local authority in maximising the quantity and quality of used beverage cans (UBC) within your area. Our European business with plants in Warrington, UK and in Germany operates an integrated remelting and rolling system that can convert used beverage cans back to highly engineered sheet aluminium ready for conversion by a can-making company in as little as 60 days.

For our suppliers we operate an ‘open door’ policy so that your authority and its stakeholders can be assured how and where the aluminium beverage cans you collect are reprocessed. As an aligned value chain we also collaborate with other aluminium and can making companies and invest PRN revenues on communication and education campaigns such as Metalmatters or Every Can Counts to help your authority increase material capture rates and target ‘on the go’ consumption.

Please contact your local metal buyer to discuss becoming a direct supplier to Novelis or how to improve the systems you already have in place.
