Energy drink cans, beer and cider cans, soft drink cans, it doesn’t matter what they contain, ALL drink cans are endlessly recyclable.  By recycling drink cans you are saving energy and resources while also keeping precious materials in the recycling loop. In 2019 Ireland recycled or recovered 89% of drink cans, with your help we think do more.  With the power of community, and the Tidy Towns, we’re aiming for 100% drink can recycling.
