Volunteers are needed all year round but mainly from April - September. We also offer one internship annually from April - September.
Alupro Ireland, founded in 2007, is a not for profit organisation set up to help encourage an interest in aluminium packaging recycling. As aluminium packaging is such a small % of the waste stream, by weight it often gets over looked.
Alupro Ireland currently manages the Every Can Counts campaign and supports the Can It! Tidy Towns Competition, the Eco-Alu Art & Design Award with Eco Unesco and previously the An Táisce National Spring Clean – Can Collection with schools and the Wash Squash and Pop Campaign with Repak.
Our aim is to make the use of aluminium packaging more sustainable- the more we recycle, the more sustainable it is. It saves 95% energy and produces 95% less emissions, using recycled aluminium for aluminium packaging products.
We look for volunteers on an ongoing basis – the events we are involved with are all over the country mainly from April - September. This is particularly suited to third level students interested in behavioural change and environmental sustainability.
We also have 1 internship per year usually April- September. All our interns have been selected from those who volunteer with us.
We can take students for event days as required if they are able to travel as we cover expenses for travel and lunch.
Age 18+ Volunteers required annually for the following events:
Wings for Life
Body & Soul
Rose of Tralee
Plus some smaller garden festivals dates to be confirmed.
