A United Message for Beverage Container Recycling in Alberta


This website is a joint effort between Alberta Beverage Container Recycling Corporation (ABCRC), the Beverage Container Management Board (BCMB), and the Alberta Bottle Depot Association (ABDA). Collectively they form one of North America’s most successful and efficient beverage container recycling partnerships.

ABCRC operates under not-for-profit provisions as the agent for beverage manufacturers in Alberta to operate the common collection system for registered non-refillable containers. ABCRC's Board of directors consists of representatives from beverage manufacturers. 

The BCMB is a Delegated Administrative Organization, mandated under the Beverage Container Recycling Regulation, to regulate and enhance a leading beverage container system, that protects Alberta’s environment. The BCMB operates with a 16-member board, consisting of representatives from Beverage Manufacturers, Depots and the public (municipalities, environment organizations, and interested citizens).

The ABDA is the recognized voice for Alberta's bottle Depots. The Depots are a network of over 200 collection sites that refund deposits paid by consumers for their beverage containers at the point of sale. The network is in almost every community across Alberta and is serviced regularly by ABCRC and is regulated by the BCMB.
