Driving sustainable metal recycling!

Our mission is to establish the industry as a valuable and recognised contributor to sustainability throughout the supply chain and beyond. We support and represent members’ on industry matters related to operational, regulatory and environmental issues. In addition we promote the benefits of metal packaging and the sustainable attributes of steel and aluminium.


MetPac-SA does not manufacture, sell or recycle metals packaging or cans.

We are an association that represents the various role-players

at Government and within the industry.

  • We develop sustainability thinking, including positions statements and commitments (ie. Industry Waste Management Plans).

  • We bring together manufacturers and suppliers to promote the benefits of metal packaging.

  • We prepare common messages and create communication programmes on behalf of our members for a wider audience.

  • We monitor local and international legislation that could have an impact on our industry.

  • We do statistical surveys of the industry.

  • We liaise with other role-players, stakeholders, government departments and industry associations to work towards better and more balanced legislation.

  • We manage issues and threats affecting our industry.

  • We work with our industry to ensure that we support the greater packaging industry’s vision of “Zero Waste to the Environment”.

Our funding, strategy and membership model:

MetPacSA is open for membership application from all the role-players in the metal packaging value chain. However, for S18 EPR purposes, we will only be reporting to DFFE on the tonnages and material splits (i.e. steel / tin plate and aluminium identified products) of those companies who have signed up with us as members, and declared their tonnages.
