Steel cans end year on a high with rise in prices

Corus has increased the amount it pays for steel cans delivered to its CanRoute collection centres throughout the UK.

It is paying an increased amount to its CanRoute centres and this should be passed on in full to collectors.

The price rise, from £60 to £75 per tonne, follows a significant year of progress, when steel packaging recycling hit an all-time high of 304,000 tonnes.

Corus manager John May said: It is good to be able to offer collectors a higher price for their collected steel cans. The increase in the value of clean steel cans is a result of the high demand for steel scrap of all types.

There are 13 centres located throughout the UK, which are operated by steel-processing companies.

These receive, check the quality of, store and bale cans before delivering them to Corus in the correct physical and chemical form to be recycled at one of Corus steel-reprocessing sites.
