Well done to you and your colleagues on this effort Andy.At half time a today’s game v Hartlepool ECFC will be receiving an award for their Aluminium Can recycling scheme ‘Cans4City’ this award is made by the, not for profit, organisation Every Can Counts in recognition of the uniqueness of the scheme within the EFL.
In Red Square before the match there will be a chance for fans, both young and old but mainly young, to have a bit of fun by using part of the award prize, a can crushing machine.
Originally started in 2005 as ‘Cans for City’, this scheme was revised in 2013 and plodded along until it gained a fresh impetus in 2019 when it went into partnership with Exeter City Council Resources Recovery Team. Since then the scheme has flourished and to date has recycled over 6 tonnes, roughly 360,000 sorted aluminium drinks cans, generating almost £5000 for items & monetary donations towards schemes within ECFC & the ECFC wider Community.
Among those recipients of donations have been;
ECFC Ladies Football team, CCT Social Café, CCT Food programme, the Bench and the ‘Returning Soldier’ for the Memorial Garden, a fridge for the home changing room, plus many, many other small but equally important ECFC related projects.
Bridgy 81,Well done to you and your colleagues on this effort Andy.
Although I don’t live locally to Exeter I’ve seen your updates on here, so I started to put cans my household has used aside for this scheme.
As needed to drive past Exeter a week or so ago I made a small diversion and delivered my first sack to the collection point in Red Square.
I only brought crushed cans on that occasion but have just finished with a large biscuit tin.
If I stomp on that (and other things like it) could it be added to my next delivery, or is the scheme limited to just drink and food cans?
