Save Time, Save Money and Help Save the Environment!

What if you could redeem your empty beverage containers for a refund whenever you wanted? With essentially no wait times, the self-serve Re-Centre depots make recycling fast, easy and convenient. All you have to do is collect your empty beverage containers in specially designed Re-Centre bags and bring them to your nearest Re-Centre depot.

Re-Centre is a unique pilot project aimed at revolutionizing recycling in New Brunswick. Open 7 days a week, from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m., the Re-Centre depots provide a fast, easy and convenient way to recycle your empty beverage containers and obtain your refund on any New Brunswick deposit-bearing containers. Save time, save money and help save the environment!

You will find that the Re-Centre depots are clean and modern. You will be surprised at how easy and fun it is to visit a re-centre to recycle your empty beverage containers. Indeed, the Re-Centre depots make recycling a safe and family friendly activity.

Plus with an accurate count system, you can rest assured that you will be refunded for all the New Brunswick deposit-bearing beverage containers you recycle. You can check your container count as well as refund balance and transfer your money at any time by signing in to your Re-Centre online account.


Launched on Earth Day 2014 (April 22), the Re-Centre pilot project is managed by Encorp Atlantic. During phase 1 of the project, two Re-Centre depots offered recycling services in the Moncton region to 2,500 participants for a 36 month test period.

Since October 1, 2017, the Re-Centre pilot project has entered Phase 2 (which is set to run until March 31, 2019). Encorp Atlantic is collaborating with a local redemption centre, Valley Redemption Centre, to see how well the Re-Centre model performs in a real-time redemption centre environment, collect missing data and fine-tune some of its components. Valley Redemption Centre is responsible for daily operations of the two Re-Centre depots. Encorp Atlantic manages communications, member services, and member accounts.

The Re-Centre depots are clean and modern. They make recycling fun for the whole family. Experience them for yourself, give feedback and share your experience in order to help build the future of recycling in New Brunswick. Sign up and create your Re-Centre account today.
