Crush a Can Day

Take out all your frustrations and anger and be green and environmentally friendly at the same time by crushing a can to celebrate Crush A Can Day on September 27.

Aluminum cans crushed For recycling in a Child's hands.

There are few things in life as satisfying as feeling a can squish and bend between your fingers, and this unofficial holiday is the perfect excuse to crush as many cans you can find. And it is environmentally friendly too! Take all your crushed cans to the recycling center to be recycled and given a new life.

Cans are containers usually used to store and transport goods and perishable food and beverages. In most grocery markets, you can find two types of food cans – tin cans and aluminum cans. In many parts of the world all cans irrespective of what they are made of are called tin cans.

It is not known who created this holiday.

How to Celebrate?

  • Start collecting cans in anticipation of this day. On the day of, host a can crushing party. Use cans to decorate your venue and serve food and beverages – just make sure they have been cleaned out thoroughly and are not rusted. Then gather around in your backyard with friends and family and get crushing.
  • Line up those cans and go crazy on them. Hold a can crushing contest – whoever crushes the most cans gets to take all of them to the recycling center!
  • Be very careful when you crush cans. If you are unable to crush them leave them at your closest recycling center – let the experts deal with it.

Did You Know…

…that recycling one tin can save enough energy to run a television for 3 hours?

Recently I heard the former mayor of Reading, Pennsylvania, 
recount some funny stories about his time in office. One happened while he was running for reelection; he was in a bar and paid for a 
woman’s drink. She thanked him but wondered why a stranger had 
bought her a beer.

“I’m running for mayor,” he told her, “and I want your vote.”

“You got it,” she said, grabbing her glass. “Anyone’s better than the jerk who’s in there now.”

My 16-year-old brother, Ryan, was out late with friends one night. Suddenly he realized it was Father’s Day and he had neglected to buy a card for our dad. After much searching, Ryan located an open store, but was disappointed to find only two cards left on a picked-over rack. Selecting one, he brought it home and, somewhat sheepishly, presented it to our father.

Upon opening it, Dad read this message: “You’ve been like a father to me.” He looked at Ryan, puzzled.

“Well, Dad,” Ryan tried to explain, “it was either that or the card that said, ‘Now that I’m a father too!’”

I was visiting my mother one day, when she passed the candy dish full of chocolates and took one for herself. “I thought your doctor told you to stop eating candy,” I said.

“Oh, I don’t have to listen to him anymore,” she replied.

“Why not?”

“He died.”

A Pennsylvania couple had trouble selling their home after strange apparitions and sounds forced them to admit in their ad that it was “slightly haunted.”

The Week asked its readers to put a more 
positive spin on the sales pitch:

• “A home suited for free spirits”

• “Mostly not haunted”

• “113-year-old Victorian, still cared for by original owners”

• “A place for all your possessions”

• “This house has good bones”

• “Your kids will make new friends”
