Research Projects Completed

Research projects that will help in guiding the future of how we provide access and convenience to New Brunswick consumers have now been completed. The successful projects came to end this fall after more than eight fruitful years of data gathering.

A variety of initiatives were tested during this period, including standard bags, pre-counted bags (40-60), reusable boxes (Re-360), unmanned drop-off depots (Re-Centre), cash-out station (Re-Station) and data management techniques. Much was learned from these research projects since 2014.

The last of these initiatives, the three Re-Centres located in Moncton, closed on Monday, October 31.

In July, the Government of New Brunswick announced that it’s implementing regulatory changes to the beverage container program in the province. This means that many positive changes are on the horizon. The modernization of the consumer interface will now become the segway to improved environmental performance.

This is good news for the beverage container recycling industry in New Brunswick as we endeavour to increase recycling rates at redemption centres through improved services and standards.

Feedback from participants has been extremely valuable. We sincerely thank our participants for making these research projects a huge success. The cooperation from stakeholders such as redemption centres, Sobeys, the City of Moncton, and the more than 3,000 participating consumers has also been exceptional and essential to our success.
