Recycling facts – where does a recycled can go?

When you throw that soup can into recycling, does it just become another can? Yes, but it doesn't stop there! Thanks to recycling, steel can be transformed into concrete reinforcing bars, chains, pipes, and car parts. This greatly reduces costs, pollution and energy used - reusing steel cans alone reduces energy use by 74%! Every tonne of recycled steel cans saves 1.36 tonnes of iron ore. Think of that next time you have soup for lunch!
