The Go Green project received an Every Can Counts Green Can Award after collecting, sorting and crushing thousands of cans in a bid to increase drinks can recycling rates within Stourport and the surrounding areas.
The project raises funds for The Emily Jordan Foundation which in turn helps adults with moderate learning and physical disabilities to lead fulfilled lives.
Go Green have recycled 8.5 tonnes in the last year and over 20 tonnes in the last 3 years. They have increased their customer base to now over 130 collection points from local businesses, pubs, clubs and the intu Merry Hill shopping centre.
Presenting the award Chris Latham-Warde Programme Manager for Every Can Counts says “It is a privilege to present a Green Can Award to the Go Green project which in turn supports The Emily Jordan Foundation. This is a fantastic example of how collecting and recycling drinks cans not only generates much needed funds it also makes a significant contribution to the environment”.
Wendy Edge, Operational Manager at The Emily Jordan Foundation ‘Go Green’ says “We continue to increase our collection points year on year encouraging others to help us recycle, thus diverting cans away from landfill. The trainees thoroughly enjoy being part of the entire end–to-end recycling process; We are delighted to have won this award from Every Can Counts”.
