Evermore Recycling LLC is the premier partner for the procurement of used aluminum beverage cans (UBCs).
Evermore Recycling provides direct-to-mill pricing and logistics to help increase efficiency, build stronger supplier relationships, and increase overall recycling.
Evermore Recycling provides suppliers a direct relationship with Alcoa who is the sole owner of Evermore -- Alcoa essentially invented the concept of recycling UBC and has nearly 125 years of experience in recycling. Your connection to Alcoa is vital to achieving long-term success for the recycling industry. Alcoa’s Evermore Recycling organization has a vested interest in building strong supplier relationships and further strengthening the supply chain due to Alcoa’s commitment to increasing utilization of recycled aluminum.
In addition to purchasing metal, Evermore Recycling is committed to raising the UBC recycling rate toward the Aluminum industry’s objective of 75%. Achieving this target would reduce carbon emissions by approximately 9 million tons annually. Evermore will increase purchases of UBCs through both collection initiatives and the development of a broader supply base locally and internationally.
Evermore Recycling also is active in public policy development, with key industry partners, to expand and strengthen the recycling infrastructure, foster recycling education and support sponsorship initiatives. Our focus will be on programs that emphasize:
Shared Responsibility among all stakeholders (including consumers, producers and government)
Low cost recycling alternatives in conjunction with waste programs that are consumption driven rather than fixed rate driven
Transparency of costs with waste disposal and recycling systems
Evermore Recycling provides suppliers with the most professional and knowledgeable people in the industry, leveraging Alcoa’s nearly 125 years of recycling experience on a global basis. The company employs a strong network of regional buyers to provide suppliers with local, hands-on customer service. The company also offers national, global and in-house solutions through its corporate office in Nashville, TN.
Evermore Recycling directly purchases UBCs from the upstream infrastructure, engaging with suppliers that meet quality and commercial requirements.
Suppliers will benefit from Freight Optimization, permitting more predictable scheduling of deliveries. Evermore Recycling’s freight optimization system allows Evermore and Alcoa to be the most efficient alternative.
Quality initiatives have been developed and implemented, enabling suppliers to gain higher value for higher quality UBCs. We have implemented improved and more uniform quality standards, which have been previously lacking in the UBC standards. We are committed to continuing to refine the quality system to best represent material value and in doing this improved alignment will create the best value for the UBC suppliers.
A direct relationship between a supplier and Alcoa’s Evermore helps align sellers with downstream recycling, thus avoiding costs while taking advantage of industry-leading developments that drive recycling, including leveraging the US Aluminum Association’s Can Committee efforts.
