Can Recycling Bin

My litter picking group are collecting littered cans and using them to raise money for our local Charity , Love Lillington. We want a recycle bin as picking the cans is a lot of hard work.

My litter picking group Friends of Black lane have cleared kilos of rubbish from our target area every month for 3 years. Much of the litter comprises of lager cans. Recently we teamed up with our local Charity, Love Lillington to make them some pennies. We are now litter picking, crushing and delivering hundreds of cans as part of the Every Can Counts scheme. Whatever cans we collect are taken by Crow Recycling , a social enterprise based in Coventry, in exchange for a small monetary amount that goes to Love Lillington.

What we'll deliver:

  • A recycling bin for cans with a can crusher - suitable for outdoor use, fire retardant and properly installed.

Why it's a great idea:

I think that a group managing a recycling bin to collect cans in order to raise money is a great model for many neighbourhoods. Our aim is to look after our environment - it's great that we are helping our community in other ways alongside this. We have talked to the Council who won't supply a bin but would be happy to install one. If we have a bin, it will make it a lot easier to collect cans - rather than picking them 'by hand'. It will also act as an incentive for individuals to bin their cans if we make the purpose of the bin clear. Not only are we clearing litter from our neighbourhood we are also working to help our local charity. The charity in question gives practical aid to families and individuals who are struggling. in our Parish area. This ranges to supplying and fitting a new carpet too help in the garden.
