Recycled cans boost

A NEW programme to aid drinks-can recycling has been launched by Alupro Ireland ahead of Repak Recycling Week.

Every Can Counts is hoping to improve the country's recycling behaviour and will target the on-the-go consumption of around 33pc of drinks cans that are consumed outside the home environment.

Irish drink-can recycling rate stands at 50pc.
