A great way to redeuce your use of plastic when recycling and redeeming your used beverage containers is to bring your containers to your local redemption centre in resuable bags, bins or boxes.
However, if you choose to use garbage bags or other types of disposable plastic bags, your local redemption centre may be able to recycle these as well for you, thanks to Encorp’s Plastic Bag Recycling Program. Encorp collects plastic bags received at participating redemption centres across New Brunswick and sends them to be recycled. Simply ask your local redemption centre if they accept plastic bags for recycling.
This new recycling initiative launched in June 2019 fits in with Encorp’s ongoing efforts to help modernize New Brunswick’s Beverage Containers Program, reduce its environmental footprint, and increase recycling at redemption centres in communities across the province.
Plastic bags must be EMPTY and CLEAN.
NO LIQUIDS or OBJECTS left inside.
Keep your bags SEPARATED.
Redemption centres reserve the right to refuse plastic bags which do not respect these guidelines.
Non-respect of this policy could lead to the end of our plastic bag recycling program.
