Warwickshire campaign that says you ‘can’ recycle more

The Warwickshire Waste Partnership has launched a campaign to encourage aluminium foil container and aerosol recycling as part of the county’s ‘Slim Your Bin’ initiative.

The Aerofoil campaign has been funded by the Aluminium Packaging Recycling Organisation (Alupro) which is backed by UK aluminium packaging producers and reprocessors.

It will encourage householders to put these materials in their kerbside recycling boxes for collection by running a series of road shows to raise awareness. 

Warwickshire County Council’s waste management spokesperson Cllr Helen Walton said: “Most households are familiar with recycling their empty food and drinks cans, but may be less sure about how to recycle aerosol cans and foil containers.

“People have all sorts of aerosols lying around all over the house – under the kitchen sink, on dressing tables and in the bathroom. Foil packaging is equally common, as it is used for everything from take-away trays and pie cases to oven-ready meals.

“All these items can be recycled, so we would like to remind households not to leave any stone, or can, unturned!”
