About Us

Recan, a Packaging Recovery Organisation in Poland, is owned by Ardagh Group. It operates four recycling centres collecting used beverage cans for the purposes of recycling. Recan’s goal is to maximise the beverage can recycling rate ensuring a circular economy. Beverage cans are infinitely recyclable in a closed loop without any loss of quality.

As one of Poland’s leading UBC organisations, Recan has a major influence on Poland’s annual beverage can recycle rate. Its mission is to deliver the best environmentally sustainable packaging recovery system for Poland, compliant with legal requirements while meeting consumer’s expectations. Since its foundation in 2002, Poland’s recycling rates for beverage cans has risen to 80%, compared to the average European rate* of 70% (*Interpack).


Having a status of Packaging Recovery Organization, Recan actively supports its beverage can customers with their recycling obligations.


To promote recycling awareness in Poland, Recan supports and participates in programmes coordinated with the Recal Foundation which promotes the recycling of beverage cans.
