Where can I recycle aluminium?
It’s getting easier to recycle, wherever you are.
Recycling is becoming easier with more cooperation across the waste industry. All of the waste collectors/recovery operators in Ireland now collect food and drink cans. They also accept kitchen foil and aluminium foil trays, and bottle tops as part of their regular household recycling schemes.
Alupro Ireland is actively encouraging businesses and waste management companies to help people to recycle more.
There is a national recycling list of what is accepted at kerbside, including aluminium packaging. For more details see the MyWaste website.
Drink cans, and aluminium bottle tops are also accepted at bring banks. To find your nearest bring bank click here
If you have larger metal items to recycle (e.g bicycles or pots and pans) you can take them to your local civic amenity centre. To find your nearest civic amenity site, click here
