Everyday, restaurants and pizzerias of Turin use approximately 14,900 tomato cans, resulting in 5 millions cans per year. A can is generally made up of 250 grams of steel tin plate. This corresponds annually to a ton of steel which is almost completely thrown in the rubbish bins, with no chance of recovering and recycling.
