Can It! is one of the longest running special awards in the Tidy Towns Competition. It challenges Tidy Towns groups to increase the can recycling facilities in their village, town or city.
By signing up local businesses, schools, colleges, sports centres, take aways, shops, and tourist attractions to a free Every Can Counts programme they can expand drink can recycling in their area.
The Can It! Award has a cash prize, and is judged on the basis of the number of Every Can Counts recycling packs distributed, and the variety of location venues relative to the population.
Taking part in the Can It! Award has the additional benefits of counting towards the ‘Sustainability’ and the ‘Tidiness and Litter Control’ sections of the overall Tidy Towns award.
Every Can Counts works with individual Tidy Towns on special projects, assisting them with local event can recycling, speaking at events, and advising on all things can recycling related.
