Encorp in Prince George, BC

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.
