Albertans achieved a beverage container return rate of 84% in 2021 and we’d like to thank our dedicated communities for their efforts. Each year Alberta bottle Depots collect over 2 billion beverage containers, which equals more than 90,502,320 kg of waste that is diverted from our landfills.
Well done, Alberta!
Alberta’s Beverage Container Management Board (BCMB) is pleased to see the Government of Alberta’s recently released Natural Gas Vision and Strategy includes a focus on a circular economy for plastics.
It was another fantastic year for the Great Prairie Bottle Harvest and the 85 organizations that participated.
