Recycling Facts

In the UK alone, we use over half a million tonnes of metal packaging and nearly 2 million tonnes of glass packaging per year. Thanks to your efforts, a lot is being recycled but there’s still a lot more to do at home or in the office.

Currently, we recycle an estimated:

  • 75% of steel packaging;
  • 60% of glass packaging; and
  • 55% of aluminium packaging.


Fact: If everyone in the UK was able to recycle just one more drinks can, it would save enough energy to power an electric train from Leeds to Brighton (and back) 6,000 times.

Food tins

If we recycled all the steel we use in a year, it would save enough energy to make nearly 135,000 return electric train journeys between London and Edinburgh.

Glass bottles 

Fact: If everyone in the UK recycled all the glass we use, it would save enough energy to chill 56 bottles of wine each day for every UK household.


Fact: If everyone recycled one more jar, it would save enough energy to put the dishwasher on in every household in the UK.
