#AskAllen series answers recycling questions from BC kids

During Waste Reduction Week 2019 (October 21-27th), we had BC kids ask our President and CEO Allen Langdon their tough questions about recycling beverage containers through Return-It. From Monday to Friday, we posted Allen's answer to a question each day on our social media channels.

Find out what important questions local kids have about recycling and check out Allen's answers from our #AskAllen series below:

1) Do all the plastic bottles that end up at Return-It depots REALLY get recycled?

2) Why is it important to recycle my plastic bottle?

3) What do you turn plastic bottles into?

4) How many times can a  plastic bottle be recycled?

5) Do I have to take the caps and labels off my bottles before I recycle them?
