Congratulations Alberta!

Alberta’s beverage container recycling industry is proud to celebrate a return rate of 85.5%, exceeding the goal of an 85% return rate set by the Government of Alberta. This equates to over 2 billion containers being returned to depots annually. This success is not only due to the hard work of industry stakeholders, but also to Albertans who are becoming more and more aware of the benefits of beverage container recycling and protecting our environment.
