Since the consumption of soft drinks at home represents three quarters of total consumption in Québec, it is essential for these containers to be returned in order to maximize their recovery.
Here are a few helpful tips:
- Get into the habit of placing your refundable containers in reusable grocery bags so that you do not forget them
- Use these same reusable grocery bags to carry the containers to the retailers in order to receive your 5¢ deposit for each container
- You do not want to return your containers? Talk to an organization in your area, such as the scouts. Many organizations are searching for ways to finance their activities, such as collecting and returning refundable containers.
To make things easier for restaurant operators, Boissons Gazeuses Environnement has launched a CONSIGNaction program that maximizes the efficiency of recovery services and equipment.
More than 1,700 clients presently adhere to this program and benefit from CONSIGNaction’s refundable container recovery services. With their support, they provide concrete assistance for the environment by recovering millions of containers that will be given a second lease on life thanks to the benefits of recycling.
