Encorp Beverage Stewardship Plan

Introduction Brief

Encorp Pacific has completed the public consultation on the Beverage Stewardship Plan required under Section 6 of the Recycling Regulation and the plan has now been approved by the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change Strategy (MOECCS)


Better known as Return-It, Encorp is pleased to release our Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) program plan, pursuant to the requirements of the BC Recycling Regulation (“Regulation”) under the Environmental Management Act which sets out the requirements for extended producer responsibility including the requirement for Extended Producer Responsibility plans. This Stewardship Plan will replace Encorp’s previous Stewardship Plan which was approved by the Ministry on November 20, 2014, and originally approved on July 19, 2007.

Plan History

Encorp undertook a comprehensive consultation process on the performance targets for the five (5) year period starting 2019. However, due to regulatory changes initiated by the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change Strategy (MOECCS) in late 2019, Encorp updated the Stewardship Plan to reflect the regulatory changes and completed another full public consultation in 2020.

Encorp's revised Stewardship Plan and other reference documents are available on the right side of this page. We have provided pdf documents and reference material for download or viewing purposes.


We invited input and comments for the 62 days between July 15 and September 15, 2020.

Encorp wishes to thank those who participated in the consultation process for our revised five-year Beverage Stewardship Plan. The questions, comments and concerns submitted have provided us with valuable insights that we have taken into consideration.
