who is calgary can?

Calgary Can is a group of Calgarians who are dedicated to reducing waste and improving recycling opportunities in Calgary by collaborating with the bottle picking community. 

Our vision is that bottle pickers are valued and compensated for their environmental and economic contributions; and our mission is to create a community-driven enterprise that involves and employs bottle pickers on their own terms.

There are innovative and inspiring organizations working with bottle pickers across Canada and we're proud to be partners with them! Check out The Binners' Project in Vancouver and Les Valoristes in Montreal to find out more about what's happening on the informal recycling front in other cities!
