Recan is a packaging recovery organisation in Poland owned by the Ardagh Group. The organisation works currently with five recycling centres across the country, collecting approx. 12,000 tons of used beverage cans (UBC) per year. The key target of Recan is to keep the beverage can recycling rate on a maximum level as well as ensuring a closed material loop.

Being one of the leading UBC organisations in Poland, Recan considerably influences the annual growth of beverage can recycling, demonstrating compatibility with the legal requirements and social expectations.

Since the start of Recan in 2002, recycling rates of aluminium beverage cans increased from 41% (2002) to 80% (2015) in Poland.
