WE CAN is a non-profit organization based in Manhattan since 1987. Our services include providing the poor and homeless with a safe and hassle-free location where they can redeem $.05 deposit bottles and cans. To date, WE CAN has paid out over $33 million to poor and homeless redeemers which equates to diverting 85,000 tons of solid waste from New York's landfills.
