From rolled sheet to valuable recycled content, used beverage cans (UBCs) are a major source of supply for the U.S. aluminum industry. However, too many UBCs have ended up in landfill as the current U.S. recycling rate of 54% attests. Due to the culmination of industry wide efforts, which include new technology to extract UBCs before they become part of the waste stream, The Aluminum Association has now, with confidence, announced a new target goal of 75% by 2015.
