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 New Brunswick deposit-bearing containers. 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 depot to recycle your empty beverage containers.

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 logging in to your Re-Centre online account.


About the Project

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 Moncton to 2,500 participants for a 36-month test period.

Since October 1, 2017, the Re-Centre pilot project has entered Phase 2. 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.
