Aluminium ... endlessly recyclable

Aluminium’s lifecycle provides significant greenhouse benefits through recycling.  Aluminium is almost endlessly recyclable and recycling saves 95% of the energy it would take to make new metal.  Nearly three-quarters of all aluminium ever made since 1886 remains in use today.
 
An aluminium can recycles 100% back into another aluminium can while only using 5% of the energy needed to make a new can from scratch.  Recycling one aluminium can even saves enough energy to run a television for three hours.

Used aluminium cans are recycled and returned to a store shelf as a new can in as few as 60 days.
 
Recycling aluminium reduces industry requirements for natural resources and diverts waste from landfill.
