Ryans and Panda set up recycling points across the site and picked up cans.
Every Can Counts was responsible for communicating the recycling message, providing highly visible and interactive promotions ahead of and during the event to encourage festival-goers to do the right thing with their empty cans.
Cans recovered in the waste stream were sorted onsite, with equipment provided by Novelis Recycling.
Around 130,000 cans, which equates to over two tonnes of aluminium and steel, were collected at the V Festival. In a statement the organisation said: “A great achievement considering every can is infinitely recyclable without loss of quality and each can recycled substantially reduces the environmental footprint of the next one made.”
