Sure We Can is a recycling center, community space and sustainability hub
where everyone counts. MAKING A VALUABLE DIFFERENCE TOGETHER.
Sure We Can is a recycling center, community space and sustainability hub in Brooklyn, NY. SWC was founded 9 years ago to respond to the need of canners, people who collect cans and bottles from the streets to redeem them for 5 cents each. Today, it has evolved into a community center that promotes a sustainable urban culture and facilitates a circular economy.
Our mission is to support the local community, particularly the most vulnerable residents, and promote social inclusion, environmental awareness and economic empowerment. Sure We Can is a place where canners, youth, schools and neighbors get together, understanding the value of waste through recycling, composting, gardening, arts & crafts and other initiatives.
