Encorp is preparing to launch a new school recycling program this fall. Our Recycling Heroes in School program will aim to increase used beverage container (UBC) recycling across the province by providing schools in New Brunswick with the supplies required to recycle UBCs and the connections to make this process convenient.
To further benefit the schools in the program and encourage them to recycle as many UBCs as possible, we will provide the schools with additional incentives, such as a full deposit refund on their returned beverage containers until March 31, 2024, and various UBC recycling contests and prizes throughout the school year. Prizes will be given out as both participation and competition rewards, ensuring that every school in the program has a chance to win something extra for participating in the program.
Every school that joins the program will receive plenty of fun promotional items for its students, such as pencils, pins, stickers, hats, reusable lunch bags and more.
While the school recycling program is launching this fall, it is planned to be a yearly program that will grow as the years progress and more schools join it. We are eagerly looking forward to the launch and growth of this program. We are excited to see the positive educational impact it will have on children and youth in the province and our overall UBC recovery rate.
