The non-profit organization AIDO, the Association of Organ Donors, in partnership with the CIAL Consortium and our initiative in Italy, Ogni Lattina Vale, organized the annual collection of beverage cans in Bergamo.
100 senior volunteers participated in the initiative, recycling 2.400 kg of aluminium! Their passion for the environmental protection and eagerness to recycle sends the message that together we can make a real difference and sets the perfect example for younger generations. People from all over the province answered the call and brought their empties to the collection point. Also, locals from nearby villages have been collecting aluminium cans all summer, during festivals, events and picnics, for volunteers to recycle. In total, 180.000 drink cans were collected and recycled, while the recycling revenue was offered to the non-profit organization to finance its upcoming projects.
