Can we recycle it? Yes we can!

A RECYCLING project has linked up with a national scheme to encourage more people not to chuck out old drinks cans.

RotherhamCAN—run by Thrybergh social enterprise Casting Innovations—demonstrates aluminium recycling.

Workshop participants receive a handcrafted item at the end of the sessions, which use ancient moulding techniques aided by modern technology.

The project has linked up with Alupro—the Aluminium Packaging Recycling Organisation, which will provide tools and information for group collections of used cans.

Casting Innovations managing director Lee Brooks said: “Our projects compliment one another and provide two way support.

“As the collection grows, so does its value, and this can be exchanged for cash to be used for social, community and environmental projects.”
