Our focus on innovation remains a top priority this spring. We will be unveiling a redesigned Re-Centre (drop & go beverage container depot) and Re-Station (retail cash-out), plus a working model for sorting tables and some point-of-sale (POS) terminal concepts for redemption centres (RCs). All these projects and concepts will be presented at the Beverage Container Recycling Forum (April 27-28, 2019) – more specifically on April 27th, during Encorp’s Open House event (1 pm – 8 pm at the Encorp Atlantic Office).
RC standards are an operational priority for beverage container distributors and stakeholders. No system improvements can succeed without acknowledging the particular situation of a number of RCs and no modernization efforts can succeed without recognizing the need to standardize and improve the consumer experience, with the intent of improving recycling rates in this province. Ignoring the convenience factor and consumer experience will simply contribute to further declining recycling rates.
After 27 years, our business model has matured, but opportunities for greater operational efficiencies and cost savings remain. We will continue to focus our efforts on achieving operational and administrative
excellence, cooperation and effective containment of costs.
