Foundation cycle can
Foundation cycle can (Stichting Kringloop Blik SKB) brings together the organizations that make metal packaging in the Netherlands. The foundation cooperates with the Packaging Waste Fund to close the cycle for the reuse of metal packaging.
Purpose of the SKB
Zaanlandia Tin Packaging is affiliated with the SKB and MVN . Together with a network of companies, we are committed to improving the image of metal as a sustainable packaging material. We also try to promote the sustainable use of raw materials and energy. We have set ourselves the goal of amply meeting the requirements for the legal recycling percentage as laid down in the Packaging Decree and the Packaging Framework Agreement between the government and the business community.
Recycling of cans
We now consider separating paper, glass and plastic for reuse normal. But did you know that metal packaging is by far the most recycled? With a recycling percentage of 95%, the Netherlands is one of the front runners in the reuse of cans. Tin packaging retains its quality and properties after endless recycling. This allows today’s can to be the aircraft of tomorrow.
