Beverage Cans Overview

Stacking Up Against the Competition

They chill faster and stay colder longer than any other beverage container. They are the world’s most recycled drink container.  And their unique stacking ability makes storage a cinch. 

Lightweight, strong and economical, it’s no wonder the aluminum can is today’s preferred package. Boasting unparalleled environmentally-friendly convenience, the aluminum beverage can delivers the premier consumer experience. 



Recycling Cans Makes Cents

Each aluminum can is worth about a penny and because of its high recycling rate, the industry pays more than $1 billion annually for recycled cans. The Can Manufacturers Institute sponsors the Great American Can Roundup which promotes awareness around the environmental benefits of recycling aluminum cans by encouraging schools, service academies and the can industry to recycle in order to raise money for charities.
