Your Re-Centre Account

The following policy describes how we process the beverage containers you recycle at the Re-Centre depots as well as credit your Re-Centre account while you hold an active account with Re-Centre.

Re-Centre Bags

To avoid bag tearing and container loss, only Re-Centre bags are to be used to drop off empty beverage containers at the Re-Centre depots. We source, distribute and test our Re-Centre bags for quality.

Re-Centre bags are available for purchase at the following locations:

Canadian Tire Gas+ Station
650 Mountain Road, Moncton

Sobeys Vaughan Harvey
(55 Vaughan Harvey Boulevard, Moncton)

Valley Redemption Centre
323 Collishaw Street, Moncton

Please note that the cost for a sleeve of Re-Centre bags is subject to change.

Accepted Beverage Containers

All Re-Centre bags dropped off at the Re-Centre depots should only contain New Brunswick deposit-bearing beverage containers. Beverage containers should be well emptied and rinsed. You can view a list of accepted containers here.

Please note that we reserve the right not to process or credit a Re-Centre bag containing hazardous materials or trash because of the danger the contents of this bag presents to the health and safety of employees and the risk of contamination to equipment and other recyclable materials.

Bag processing time

Once you drop off empty beverage containers at a Re-Centre depot, you can expect your Re-Centre account to be updated within 3 business days. “Business Day” means a day in the province of New Brunswick other than a Saturday, Sunday or a statutory holiday. Please note that there could be additional delays in your bag processing time, for reasons beyond our control.

Electronic Transfer of Funds From Your Re-Centre Account

As of November 1, 2017, participants who sign up to the Re-Centre pilot project will not have the option to submit banking information for direct deposit. Direct deposit will also cease to be offered to all Re-Centre account holders in 2018.

You will still be able to initiate an electronic transfer of funds from your Re-Centre account to your personal bank account, but you will have to use the PayPal option in your Re-Centre account in order to do so. You easily link as many personal bank accounts as you wish to your PayPal account. More information is available here.

Cheques

You are responsible for making sure that your contact information is up to date in your Re-Centre account. When requesting a cheque to access funds in your Re-Centre account, you will be given the chance to confirm or update the address shown in your Re-Centre account profile and we will issue a cheque to this address. If you lose your cheque or do not receive your cheque after a reasonable period of time and we are required to do a stop payment on the cheque and reissue payment, a service fee may apply.

Charitable Donations

If you choose to donate money from your deposit-bearing containers refund to a charity via the Re-Centre account donations option, the amount that you wish to donate will be transferred to the United Way, which will then arrange payment to the chosen charity on your behalf, minus a 5% administration fee. Payments are processed by the United Way twice per year: in July and September. If you request a receipt for tax purposes, this receipt will be issued by the United Way.

Please note that our system only allows you to donate to charities registered with the Canada Revenue Agency. We encourage you to check the Canada Revenue Agency’s Charities Listings to see if your favourite charity is eligible and ensure that you know the official registered name of this charity. Please note that the list of available charities found under in the Re-Centre account donation option is updated only once per year; therefore, it can take quite some time for newer charities to be added to this list.

Your personal information will only be given to the United Way if you request to obtain a receipt. This includes your full name, home address, phone number and email address. You will not receive solicitation by the United Way.

Errors

We reserve the right to correct the balance of your Re-Centre account if we believe that a clerical, accounting or other error occurred. We shall have no liability for any accounting error. You should monitor your transactions and account balances closely.

Unauthorized Transactions

You are responsible for all transactions associated with your Re-Centre account, including unauthorized transactions.

Unclaimed Balances

It is your responsibility to periodically check your Re-Centre account balance and access your money. Once the Re-Centre pilot project ends, unclaimed balances equal to or more than $5.00 will be paid out to Re-Centre account holders. Unclaimed balances left over in Re-Centre accounts 6 months after the pilot project ends that are less than $5.00 in value will be donated to a local charity of our choice.

Closing Your Account

If you wish to close your Re-Centre account, please contact us at info@re-centre.ca or 1.506.389.7333. We will issue a cheque for any remaining amounts in your Re-Centre account and your Re-Centre card will be deactivated.
