Recycle your cans. Tin and steel cans save a lot of energy if they are recycled. Reclaiming one ton of steel or tin saves 1.5 tons of ore. Tin recycling saves an estimated 2,600 kilowatt hours per ton. Steel recycling saves and average of 4,300 kilowatt hours per ton or 47% of the energy required to process steel from raw materials.

I would like to know where I can buy tins or recyled tins. I am a forwarding agent and a customer my mine wants 10x 40ft containers a month. Can you help me to tell me if you sell them or where I can buy them. Thanking you.
I hate to ask a dumb question, but what type of cans are steel? I know soda cans are aluminum and soup cans are steel, so what are tin?
Editor's Note: All steel cans are coated (plated) with tin. I believe cans may have been all tin at one time but now they are only tin coated. So they are both steel and tin cans.
Why would you want to disintegrate a tin can? Why wouldn't you just recycle it?
What do they do with the tin cans, is it used to make anything else?
