SARCAN Estevan set an ambitious goal of crushing 1,000,000 containers during the month of July. Connie Hagel, the assistant manager, explained to us that "it was 30 years of SARCAN being in business; 30 years ago they started crushing cans, and it was just cans that you got money back for your deposit. Now they have added all sorts of beverage containers; like your milk jugs, glass, your pop bottles and things like that."
At the end of July, they were only a few thousand containers short of their goal, processing a total of 931,914 containers during the month of July. She adds that from April to July SARCAN Estevan recycled 3.5 million containers.
