Aluminium Cans Have A Higher Recycling Rate
In an era of increased unemployment rate, collecting aluminium cans for recycling proves to be a viable and cost effective way of putting bread on the table.
Aluminium cans have a higher recycling rate and more recycled content than competing package types. They are lightweight, stackable, strong and they have good financial returns.
On a good month, an aluminium can collector can make approximately R6000 if they collect 2000 cans weekly.
Aluminium cans are far more valuable than glass or plastic. As such, the city’s department of waste management services encourages waste collectors to never leave a dumped can unattended.
