Hello Friends of Columbia Bottle Depots!
Encorp’s Return-It program has announced today that as of November 1, 2019 “there will be a 10-cent deposit for all ready-to-drink beverage containers containing soft drinks, juice, water, energy and sport drinks up to and including 1 litre in size. Consumers can redeem their full 10-cent deposit refund on these containers when recycling at Return-It depots and retail locations province-wide.” This includes all of the Columbia Bottle Depots in Kelowna, BC.
Simplified, this means that any beverage container that previously had a 5-cent deposit refund will now have a 10-cent deposit refund.
