How Much Will Your Empties Earn?

You’re might not be aware, but container deposit refund levels are set by government legislation. As of June 2013, the current deposit refund rates set by the Beverage Container Management Board are as follows:

  • 1 Litre & Under = 10 Cents
  • Over 1 Litre = 25 Cents

Remember, your containers need to be still intact, between 35 millilitres and 20 litres, and sold in Albert to be accepted. Learn more about the refundable and recyclable items we accept at Manchester Bottle Depot!

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.
