CHICAGO, June 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- As one of the leading global beverage can makers, Rexam is committed to sustainability and providing its customers with the most environmentally-friendly beverage package.  

Rexam delivers strong Sustainability improvements.

The company was recently awarded for its efforts to raise awareness and involvement in aluminum can recycling in its local communities. The Illinois Recycling Association (IRA) has named Rexam as the 2014 Excellence in Recycling Award winner in the Outstanding Business Recycling Program category. This award recognizes a business for success in implementing recycling activities that have resulted in significant reductions to its waste stream.

Rexam continuously participates in many local and national activities to promote recycling and raise money for local charities. This includes the Great American Can Roundup Industry Challenge, sponsored by the Can Manufacturers Institute (CMI). In this annual industry-wide competition, companies compete to recycle the most aluminum cans and donate the proceeds to charity. Rexam has taken the top spot in this contest for the past seven years in a row.

Each year, the Illinois Recycling Association recognizes outstanding achievements in sustainable resource management, focusing on waste reduction, reuse and recycling. The  Excellence in Recycling Awards are presented at the organization's annual conference.

"Rexam BCNA's dedication to recycling awareness and education is exemplary," said Marta Keane, president, Illinois Recycling Association. "Their efforts, that inspire tremendous participation, need to be recognized as an example to other businesses. If more organizations adapted some of their creative approaches, we would increase recycling throughout Illinois."
