Albertans achieved a beverage container return rate of 86% in 2018 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 103,156,780 Kg of waste that is diverted from our landfills.
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.
