S. population. , 2002). Some collect cans for the income, some for the exercise, some out of a sense of obligation toward the environment. Part-time collecting is seasonal (Ambrosia, 1992; Harler, 1999), with far more cans being collected during the warmer months. Buy-back centers differ considerably in their degree of sophistication and size. The simplest are first-tier facilities, which purchase cans and perform some rudimentary sorting (Aluminum Association, 1998). 3 illustrates a typical reverse vending machine, which returns a small amount of cash for cans fed into it.

As the amount of aluminum and magnesium in cars has increased (see Chapter 2), their value to the recycling industry has increased as well. ) This makes it more likely that obsolete automobiles will be returned for recycling through proper channels, rather than simply being abandoned. 2 points out (Bruggink, 2002), 80% of all passenger vehicles sold in the United States are now recovered for recycling. The percentages recovered in Europe and Japan are similar and will likely increase in the future.

3 shows (Melo and Krüger, 1999), these sectors are a very small fraction of aluminum transport use. Aluminum use in trains is more significant, particularly for freight cars but increasingly for passenger cars as well. However, most of the aluminum used in transport applications goes into automobiles, SUVs, light trucks, and motorcycles. This use began after World War II and has increased steadily since. The average use of aluminum was 124 kg per vehicle in the United States in 2002 and was projected to rise to 181 kg per vehicle by 2005.
