Environmentally sustainable packaging products

For users of steel packaging pails, drums and cans, you will be pleased to know that steel, tinplate and its by products are 100% recyclable. This makes steel the most environmentally friendly packaging substrate available today.

Being 100% recyclable, the lifecycle of these materials is potentially endless without compromising on the strength and quality of the product.

Perennial Packaging actively endorses environmental sustainability by participating in and promoting recycling and carbon reduction programs.

How to recycle steel packaging

All types of steel can be recycled, including food tins, bottle tops, paint cans, aerosols and scrap metal.

  • TIP: Recycle food cans by emptying contents and removing food residue, place the lid and any steel bottle tops inside the cans and squish the sides to close. It is not necessary to rinse the can or remove paper labels.
  • TIP: Recycle paint tins by brushing any leftover paint onto newspaper and disposing in the bin. Air dry the tin with any residue paint prior to recycling.
  • TIP: Recycle aerosol cans by first emptying all contents of the can, then remove any plastic nozzle where possible before recycling.
