Quality Control (QC)

Redemption centres are paid a handling fee to accurately sort and count deposit-bearing beverage containers. Inaccurate container counts can pose a financial burden on the New Brunswick Beverage Containers Program.

Quality Control (QC) is thus a high priority for Encorp Atlantic. It should also be a priority for your redemption centre.

Encorp Atlantic uses a systematic sampling method to monitor the level of compliance and report on a regular basis to individual redemption centres with the necessary adjustments. More information can be found in the following document:
