Cans collected at the bring sites are taken to Rehab Recycle's facilities in Cork or Dublin where they are treated and baled before being sold on for reprocessing.
They are made from steel or aluminium, the most energy intensive commodity in common use. A wide range of consumer goods are packaged in cans including drinks, meats, fruits and animal foods.
Along with managing aluminium bring banks across Ireland, Rehab Recycle also offers a collection service for corporate clients. If your company or organisation is generating large quantities of cans, contact Rehab Recycle for a tailor-made solution. Call freefone 1800 661 551 or email email@example.com
