#1 What are we supposed to do with all of the men who crush recyclable aluminum cans against their heads?
#2 What are we supposed to do with all the aluminum cans that no longer are recyclable due to that they've been crushed by a mans head?
Every year over 1bn cans are sold in Sweden.
Aprox. 88% of these get recycled.
In order for the can to be eligible for the swedish deposit-refund system it requires that:
» the can is swedish
» the EAN-code is unharmed
» the container is whole e.g. not flattened

My findings show that we must try not to crush cans. But if a can happens to get crushed we would benefit from beforehand having exchanged the EAN-code for a QR-code - since the design of a QR-code makes it less prone to get readability issues.
The code should also be placed on the bottom dome since it’s the most resiliant part of the can.
