Albertans achieved a beverage container return rate of over 85% in 2015 and we’d like to thank our dedicated communities for their efforts. Well done, Alberta! Each year Alberta bottle Depots collect over 2 billion beverage containers, which equals more than 107,324,978 Kg of waste that is diverted from our landfills.
A beverage container recycling program can be started anywhere, by anyone. In order for Alberta’s beverage container recycling programs to flourish in an office, home, business, school, hotel, condo, or a public space they need to be developed using the right tools.
Most Albertans know that 0 – 1 litre plastic water bottles can be returned to a Depot for a refund of 10 cents.
