Listening and Learning

Alberta’s beverage container recycling system is one of the best in the world. The BCMB is committed to continually assessing the system’s performance and exploring new and innovative ways to make it cost effective and efficient.

We regularly survey the public on their recycling habits and level of satisfaction with depots and the beverage container recycling system.
