105,000 Recycled Every Minute. Endlessly.
Aluminum can be recycled an infinite number of times, and very quickly. From the time an aluminum beverage container is returned for deposit, it returns to store shelves as a brand new can in just 60 days.
Recycling aluminum makes a huge difference in conserving energy too. Just one aluminum can recycled saves enough energy to keep a 100-watt bulb burning for almost four hours or run your television for three hours.
Last year 54 billion cans were recycled, saving energy equivalent to 15 million barrels of crude oil – about three-fourths of America's entire oil consumption for one day.
