SNC teams-up with Alupro for ‘MetalMatters’ recycling campaign
South Northamptonshire Council (SNC) has teamed up with Aluminium Packaging Recycling Organisation (Alupro), an association for aluminium packaging producers, reprocessors and fillers in the UK, for the promotion of “MetalMatters’ recycling campaign across the district.
Rick Hindley, executive director of Alupro, said: “The MetalMatters programme has delivered significant increases in the volumes of metal packaging collected for recycling in other parts of the UK, so we’re aiming to repeat – and hopefully better this – in South Northants."
The “MetalMatters’ recycling campaign is a communications campaign revolved around educating householders about metal packaging recycling and motivating to recycle more at home. MetalMatters is funded by the metal packaging and recycling industry and leading brand owners.
South Northamptonshire residents are being urged to recycle more of the 45 million items of metal packaging used in the district every year. The residents are reminded that aerosol cans, drink and food cans, aluminium trays and wrapping foil, can be recycled through the council’s blue wheelie bin.
Cllr Dermot Bambridge, SNC’s portfolio holder for environmental services said, “Over a year, the average household uses approximately 600 food tins, 380 drink cans, 27 aerosols and 182 foil trays. Every metal can that is recycled saves enough energy to power a television for four hours.”
“By recycling all the metal packaging used in South Northamptonshire each year would save around 1,220 tonnes of carbon dioxide, the equivalent to taking over 260 cars off local streets for a year and helping the environment.”Get fresh Aluminium data and insights
