Beverage Container Program Review

In 2011, after five years of operation and with the intent of maintaining the programs success, the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (ENR) commissioned a review of the NWT Beverage Container Program.  The complete report and a summary of the report (which includes ENR's responses to report's recommendations) are available below.

Annual Reports

Since the program began in 2005, over 160 million beverage containers have been returned to community depots.  The rate of return for this program is averaging at 84% which is one of the highest in the country!  For more information on the progress of the BCP, check out our annual reports:
