At Encorp Atlantic, we’re all about recycling. We’re a not-for-profit producer responsibility organization that recycles non-refillable deposit-bearing beverage containers on behalf of hundreds of beverage product distributors in New Brunswick.
We collect, process, and recycle over 350 million used beverage containers annually in New Brunswick, ensuring that plastic, glass, aluminum, carton, and other materials needed for packaging your favourite beverages do not end up in landfills or polluting roadways, waterways, and our province’s beautiful outdoor spaces.
Encorp: Proud to Be a Leader in Recycling and Industry Stewardship
We are committed to the long-term sustainability of the Beverage Containers Program. In 2014, we launched a research initiative with a series of pilot projects to explore and test new methods of redeeming used beverage containers using case studies and best practices from other legislated programs in other provinces, the U.S. and Europe. Objectives included improving recycling rates in the province and consumer convenience, increasing redemption centre productivity levels and establishing provincial standards.
We’re now using the knowledge and expertise gathered from this research initiative and pilot projects to create and launch technology tools that will be implemented in New Brunswick redemption centres, such as a Point-of-Sale (POS) system, and a next-generation drop & go express recycling service for beverage consumers.
We’re also continuing to build upon the knowledge gained to create and launch innovative public space and special events recycling programs. These programs focus on reducing litter in our beautiful outdoor spaces, supporting recycling in schools, and helping communities use recycling as a way to raise funds.
