Bottle Depot Nanaimo – Full Deposit On Your Returns

Milk is now worth $0.10 and is part of the deposit system.

Do you know all of the different types of beverage containers that have a deposit refund in BC? Many people are unaware of all of the container types they can recycle for a refund.

Bottles and cans are commonplace items amongst households. Rather than throw these in the garbage, you can reduce pollution, cut greenhouse gas emissions, and conserve energy by recycling your bottles and cans instead.

Did you know that recycling your aluminum cans reduces energy consumption by 95%? When aluminum cans are recycled, they’re melted down and reformed as new cans which requires much less energy than producing aluminum from scratch. Plastic bottles are made from petroleum which is a non-renewable resource and glass requires a lot of minerals, energy, and water to produce. By recycling your bottles, you reduce energy consumption and conserve resources.

At our Recycling Depot in Nanaimo, we have the tools and knowledge to properly handle and dispose of your bottles and cans, to create a more sustainable environment.
