Every Can Counts aims to make it easier for people to recycle their cans when they’re out and about, we provide free recycling packs to organisations who want to offer can recycling facilities for the customers, staff, and visitors.
Each pack includes three indoor recycling bins, posters, and liner sacks. Every Can Counts works with existing waste contractors who take away these bags of segregated cans.
The Can It! Award challenges groups to increase the number of can recycling points within their town or village. There are four simple steps to take part and win:
- Identify local businesses or organisations who could use FREE can recycling bins. (It could be a café, a leisure centre, a GAA club or anywhere you see a need).
- Speak with the business owner/manager and ask them if they’d like some free can recycling packs (includes 3 indoor bins, posters, and bin liners).
- Contact Every Can Counts at firstname.lastname@example.org with details of the venue and how many bins they require. Please include a contact name, number, and address, and let us know if they consent to receiving and using the recycling packs.
- Fill in the application form found here and return it to email@example.com
The quantity and variety of locations where groups place an Every Can Counts programme will be taken into consideration when choosing a winner.
