All ready to serve beverages sold in Alberta fall under the regulation and must be registered with the Beverage Container Management Board (BCMB) by the manufacturer. Eligible beverage containers include water, milk, juice, pop, alcoholic beverages and much more. There are over 110,000 beverage containers registered in Alberta and all are eligible for a refund when returned to a bottle depot. Depots do not accept soup, oil or other non-beverage product containers.
All “Registered” beverage containers are eligible for a deposit refund at an Alberta Depot. It is against the law for a Depot to purchase an unregistered beverage container. Unregistered containers are usually new or foreign beverage containers, and are not eligible for a deposit refund. For more information, contact your local Depot, or the Beverage Container Management Board.
