 Beverage containers - Milk cartons, bottles and jugs

Recycle it

Residents can return all ready-to-serve drink containers, including milk containers to a privately-operated bottle depot for a refund. To find the nearest bottle depot, contact the Beverage Container Management Board at 1-888-424-7671.
Milk containers can also be recycled in your blue cart or at community recycling depots.
If you live in an apartment, townhouse or other multi-family complex, milk containers should be accepted in your building's recycling program.
Starting November 1, 2016, we require businesses and organizations to recycle all the materials we do at home, plus scrap metal, clear plastic film (polyethylene) and wood. For more details, please view the recycling requirements for businesses and organizations.
For other recycling opportunities, speak with your hauler or consult Alberta's Recycling Hotline.
