*Note that in NS, pouches attract a deposit on the “mother pack” only. The mother pack could contain, for example, 10 pouches thus the deposit is 10 cents. All 10 pouches in the mother pack must be returned to get the 5-cent refund. In NB, each pouch attracts a deposit and the refund is given on each item.

ACCEPTED CONTAINERS

NON-ACCEPTED CONTAINERS (Non-Deposit Bearing) 

The following beverages are not considered ready-to-drink
beverages and therefore, do not have a deposit.

What do I do with Other Containers? 

All non-deposit bearing beverage containers, as well as all other types of empty recyclable containers (food, household cleaning products, etc.), should be recycled through your regional solid waste commission’s recycling program.

Below are the items that we accept and what they're

worth. Please check to see what you can redeem.

To get a refund you must return the containers to the

province where the containers were purchased.

In N.S., some non-dairy products, meal replacements, nutrition shakes and liquid dietary supplements are subject to a deposit/refund. A good rule to follow is look at the ingredients; if the first or second ingredient is milk, then there is no deposit.

    Not part of the program:
  • Infant formula

  • Containers greater than 5 litres

  • No wine kit boxes are subject to the deposit/refund program

  • Milk and milk products (ex: milk, chocolate milk, cereal cream, yogurt, eggnog, etc.)

  • Milk substitutes (ex: soya milk, Almond Breeze milk, coconut milk, hemp milk, Silk milk, etc.)

  • Meal replacements, nutrition shakes and liquid dietary supplements (ex: Ensure, Boost, etc.)

  • Containers purchased outside New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, including other provinces and the USA, etc.

  • Powdered or frozen juices (E.g. Minute Maid, Cool Quenchers, Old South, etc.)

  • Concentrates (ex: lemon juice mix, Slush Puppy syrup, vanilla extract, etc.)

  • Fruit syrups
