Where Do Containers Go?
Recycling makes sense. The steps involved in supplying recovered material to be recycled into new products use less energy than supplying new materials to industry. This helps to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases.
Beverage containers recovered in the NWT are recycled or reused whenever possible. The regional processing centres in Inuvik, Hay River and Yellowknife are responsible for finding markets for recycling and shipping the containers south.
