HOW MANY SCRAP CANS WOULD YOU NEED FOR ONE TON OF MATERIAL?
We regularly see articles about collecting scrap cans being a good way to make extra money whilst recycling. Unfortunately you can’t sell a few drinks cans, so how many cans would you need to have a good weight to sell (1 ton)?
An empty aluminium can approximately weighs around 14g. That means you’d approximately need 70 cans to have 1kg, & for 1ton you would need 63,502 cans.
Because of the quantity required, for most people it’s not worth collecting the quantity required for you to sell to a scrapyard. Always recycle, but unless you have a serious soft drink addiction & can store tens of thousands of cans; it’s probably not worth collecting.
