See What Items We Recycle at Our Manchester Bottle Depot Ltd!

Did you know it takes 95% less energy to recycle an aluminum can than to make a new one? So you may not think twice about recycling that can, but together we can make a huge impact in reducing the cost of gasoline, saving our environment, and keeping harmful pollutants out of Alberta’s waterways, habitats, and the air we all breathe.

Recycle for the Kids

If you don’t need the cash, but still want to make a change, we’ve set up a donation for Alberta Cans for Kids. Eligible deposit refunds will be donated to Stollery Children’s Hospital Foundation and Alberta’s Children’s Hospital Foundation. These non-profit foundations are aimed at improving the health of kids in Edmonton and Calgary. Your donation will help raise funds for research, education, equipment, and special services.

The Fine Print: As mandated by the Beverage Container Management Board, to receive a refund on your recycling deposit, your container must be purchased within Alberta, and food containers (including plastic and paper cups) that are not sealed by a manufacturer are ineligible for a refund. Although, check the City of Calgary’s blue cart recycling page for tips on how to recycle non-refundable items.
