Industry-funded campaigns

Alupro also manages programmes on behalf of partners from across the metal packaging recycling industry which are helping to drive positive and lasting behaviour change among consumers.

Increasing kerbside capture of all metal packaging

MetalMatters is a communications campaign promoting the recyclablility of all metal packaging to householders.  The campaign is proven to increase capture rates for metal packaging and has a positive impact on capture rates for other dry recyclables.

Recycling away from home

Every Can Counts provides resources to support organisations who want to set up and promote recycling of drinks cans used outside the home. This includes bespoke containers, eye-catching communications materials and PR support. Every Can Counts can be used to support recycling services in commercial premises, in offices and schools, at events and even on the beach!

MetalMatters and Every Can Counts were both cited as examples of good practice in the 2011 government Waste Policy Review.
