Bottle Drives are an easy way for groups in the community to raise funds. Especially once the weather gets nice, we have lots of different organizations come to the Nechako Bottle Depot. We are the only “full refund” bottle depot for beer bottles and cans in the City of Prince George. This means you receive $1.20/dozen.

Nechako Bottle Depot is an Encorp Bottle Return-It Depot.
RETURN-IT IS NOT PAID FOR BY TAX DOLLARS, nor is it funded by government. The deposit paid on a beverage container is fully refunded when you return it, which means recycling of the containers needs to be funded in other ways. Part of the cost of managing the Return-It system is included in the price you pay for a beverage. Some of the funding also comes from selling the recyclable material to companies (many right here in BC) who turn them back into a variety of useful products. Unredeemed deposits also help to fund the system. But when all of these sources of revenue still can’t cover the cost of recycling, a small fee is charged.
