Save your cans for a World Record Attempt

Let’s put RVA on the map for its glorious cans.

A large percentage of us recycle our cans. Once those bit of aluminum get tossed in the back of the truck they are out of mind but there is a game changer on the horizon for RVA’s empty beverage cans.

That special can of beer that you brought across the country can finally have its day in the sun or its day in the sculpture. Details from Enrichmond and the Community Idea Stations.

The Enrichmond Foundation has partnered with Hardywood Park Craft BreweryRiver City RecyclingTFC RecyclingMy Glasses Rule, and Virginia Commonwealth University to attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the largest recyclable structure made from aluminum cans. The effort will be unveiled on Saturday, April 26th during the Earth Day Richmond Festival in Shockoe.

Their record-breaking attempt will launch Thursday, March 6th from 6-9pm at Hardywood Brewery. Join the party and learn more about the effort, the 21st Earth Day Richmond Festival in Shockoe, listen to good music, enjoy Hardywood beer, and fun festivities. Cans will be collected at “Save the Cans” drop-off points throughout the city until April 26th.
