Join our friendly SCAA team as Can Collectors, by raising awareness and funds we can keep saving time and saving lives across all of Scotland.

Speak with local shops and businesses about the life-saving work SCAA provides and placing a new can if they are happy.
Keep SCAA updated on locations of cans.
Monitor your area of cans if they need collected. Some are busier than others.
Uplift full cans and providing clean, empty cans.
Count and bank locally (some banks have change counters, but not all).
Contact the office with details of the funds, they will send a thank you and update you on how much was raised.
