New Spin on Steel Can Recycling

New Spin on Steel Can Recycling

Parnell based Slice Media Ltd has been appointed the PR agency for the Steel Can Association of New Zealand (SCANZ).

Slice will focus on helping SCANZ meet its requirements under the Packaging Accord, encouraging Local Authorities throughout the country to accept all types of steel cans for recycling as well as raising awareness within the industry and general public about the benefits of recycling steel cans.

Bruce Gledhill, SCANZ Programme Director says, “The Accord target, and our objective, is to get more cans set out by householders - this is the only way to increase the recovery rate. To do this all the signatories to the Accord have to work towards making participation in recycling the easy and obvious choice.

“As the steel industry sector signatory we must demonstrate commitment to the Accord principles and in doing so will support local authorities as they seek to increase the national recycling rate of all packaging types and brand owners as they work to specify packaging with sustainability and recovery in mind,” he says.

“Slice Media offered us the right mix of experience in matters environmental, professional communications skills and enthusiasm. We are excited by the prospect of working with them.” Lisa Williams, Director Slice Media says,

“SCANZ is a natural fit around our existing client base and a challenge we are looking forward to. With the innovative campaigns we have in mind I’m sure steel can recycling will have a much higher profile by this time next year.”
