Distributors are responsible for ensuring their beverage products properly account for the deposit if they are included in the New Brunswick Beverage Containers Program. If not already done so, we highly recommend reviewing your entire non-alcoholic beverage product list to ensure compliance with the program (registration as well as remittance of deposits) – especially as it pertains to the changes which took effect last year on April 1, 2020 (beverages with dairy, certain plant-based beverages, and certain sport/nutrition type drinks are now subject to a deposit). We have tools to assist you on our website (encorpatl.ca) in the “Distributors” menu — look under the “Which Beverage Products Are Deposit-Bearing?” section on the “Registering & Selling Beverage Products in NB” page.
Take note that, if you need assistance, our staff is available to check your product list for accuracy. If you would like us to do an extensive review, please send us the list of all non-alcoholic beverages for sale in your stores (Excel format), and we will verify if you are charging deposits properly. Submit your list to Colette Boucher at firstname.lastname@example.org.
