On the road to success
In 1994 we collected and recycled about 300 million soft drink cans and bottles. In 2006 that number grew to nearly 1 billion non-alcohol and alcohol beverage containers.
As of 2006, Encorp transport contractors collected containers from 168 independently-owned Return-It depots and approximately 350 major grocery stores. In rural areas depot operators extend outwards from larger centres to collect containers from retailers in most small communities in the province. Other contractors provide collection services for hospitals, institutions, restaurants, businesses and schools.
