Green can awards

Businesses around Ireland, large and small, are using Every Can Counts to start, or improve, their recycling.  We’ve seen some great results as the programme has helped businesses work towards targets including zero waste to landfill and ISO140001 accreditation.

The Green Can Awards recognise the businesses that are going above and beyond when it comes to their drinks can recycling – it’s a mark of our appreciation for your efforts to make your cans count.

Receiving a Green Can Award will help you show your staff, customers and suppliers that you mean business when it comes to recycling.

Who can apply for a Green Can Award?

We’re looking for the businesses and organisations who have used Every Can Counts as a platform to encourage a positive change in recycling behaviour.  We want to celebrate their success but also use their experience to inspire other businesses and organisations to follow their example

To qualify for a Green Can Award you need to have signed up to the Every Can Counts programme and be able to demonstrate how you have used the programme’s communications materials to make positive changes in recycling behaviour.  Perhaps you’ve recruited a recycling champion to inspire and motivate staff, or you’ve held awareness events – however you’ve made Every Can Counts work for you, we want to hear about it.

How do we apply?

Fill out our online questionnaire and then send along with supporting materials including photos and video.

Entries can be submitted at any time, but there are two cut off dates during the year when entries received in that period are judged. If you miss one date your entry will be saved for the next round of judging.

Entry Deadline dates: 2nd June 2017 and 22nd December 2017

What will we receive?

If your entry is successful, you will be notified by letter along with a Green Can Award certificate (valid for 2 years) to mark your reward. You will also receive additional materials, including an e-logo, to help promote your achievement and for use in marketing and CSR evaluations.  We may also contact you to create a case study about your business’s successful recycling.
