You know you want to, so don’t hold back when it comes to squashing those cans on National Crush a Can Day. Not only does this day give you the opportunity of crushing, squeezing and bending cans into satisfyingly small shapes, it’s also a chance to share can compression fun with family and friends. A fantastic stress buster, can squashing is also a great way to get more cans into a smaller space at recycling facilities, so get squishing those cans!

On National Crush a Can Day, any safe form of can crushing is permissible. Why not gather friends together for a Crush a Can Ultimate Can Destruction party? Line those cans up and throw rocks or other heavy objects at them before stomping the tins into oblivion with a well-placed boot. You can always finish the event with a few beers, hopefully generating more empty cans for further crushing excitement.
