    Our Recycling Technicians are the foundation of SARCAN and we are very proud of our workforce which is now over 900 people strong throughout the 67 communities that we serve!

    Beverage Containers Recycled April 2020 to March 2021

    Even with reduced capacities and closures due to COVID-19, we still took in and recycled nearly half a BILLION containers from April 2020 to March 2021!

  • 957,594

  • 48,000,000

    Every. Year! Keeping this material out of our landfills helps out Saskatchewan communities both environmentally and economically.

  • 12,000
    Vehicles Off the Road

    Sure, these numbers are all huge, but what do they really mean? Well, recycling saves greenhouse gas from being emitted. In our last year, that is equal to taking 12,000 cars off the road!

  • 8000
    Homes Powered

    Along with the decreasing greenhouse gases emitted, recycling also saves energy - and a lot of it at that! The energy saved by SARCAN each year is enough to power over 8,000 homes - that's the size of Swift Current!
