Beverage Container Deposit Remittance Forms

New EPR Beverage Containers Program Coming April 1, 2024

Starting April 1, 2024, the New Brunswick Beverage Containers Program will shift to an extended producer responsibility (EPR) model, falling under the jurisdiction of the New Brunswick Designated Materials Regulation (Clean Environment Act).

Encorp is the federally incorporated, not-for-profit producer responsibility organization (PRO) appointed as the sole Agent to fulfill the Regulation’s requirements for all beverage industry members. Encorp will assist its stewards (defined as “brand owners” by the Regulation) in meeting their obligation to establish collection and recycling programs for beverage containers under relevant provincial EPR legislation. Additionally, Encorp will regularly engage with brand owners and retailers of regulated products to ensure awareness of their obligations related to the EPR Beverage Containers Program in New Brunswick.

THE INFORMATION PRESENTED BELOW ONLY APPLIES TO BEVERAGE PRODUCT DISTRIBUTORS WHO ARE CURRENTLY REPRESENTED BY ENCORP AS THEIR AGENT FOR THE BEVERAGE CONTAINERS PROGRAM UNTIL MARCH 31, 2024. ENCORP IS IN THE PROCESS OF SIGNING NEW AGREEMENTS WITH BEVERAGE INDUSTRY MEMBERS IN ANTICIPATION OF THE NEW EXTENDED PRODUCER RESPONSIBILITY (EPR) BEVERAGE CONTAINERS PROGRAM THAT WILL COME INTO EFFECT ON APRIL 1, 2024.

Beverage product distributors must report the sales of all deposit-bearing beverage products in the province and remit the deposits paid by their customers to purchase these beverages directly to their distributor agent responsible for recycling the beverage containers post-consumer.

Distributors who are represented by Encorp can use the forms provided below to do so depending on the type of product sold. Containers for non-alcohol and alcohol beverage products are reported separately using different forms.

Deposit Remittances for Non-Alcohol Beverage Containers 

Non-alcohol beverage product distributors – represented by Encorp as their agent for recycling beverage containers – must use the form provided below to report and remit the deposits collected on beverage containers for non-alcohol beverages sold. 

The form is available and can be filled out in either of these formats: electronic format or fillable PDF format.

Unless otherwise specified by Encorp, this remittance form must be completed and submitted by distributors within 10 days of the end of their monthly accounting cycle. Payment must be received within 30 days of the end of the accounting cycle.

– Important Note About HST – 

Encorp does not make HST payments on taxable beverage container deposits to the Canada Revenue Agency on your behalf.

Our Deposit Remittance Form is set up to calculate the HST portion in deposits and to exclude this amount from the total amount you must pay to Encorp.

It is each distributor’s responsibility to pay the HST portion on deposits (total shown in box “H”) directly to the Canada Revenue Agency.
