Steel Cans

Steel cans are processed in the UK.

  • Bales of steel are put into an articulated lorry at the MRF in Smugglers Way and taken to the facility.
  • Bales are off-loaded at a bulking yard, where the bales are broken down and any contaminants removed.
  • Material is then taken to a UK-based furnace where it is smelted into sheets that are used to make new cans, car or plane parts or anything else that is manufactured from steel.
