Where can I get bag tags?

Bag tags are printed when you visit a re-centre and scan your Re-Centre card.

Is there a limit on how many containers I can put in my Re-Centre bag?

There is no limit. You can mix plastic, glass, and aluminum. Just make sure to leave enough room to tie off the top with a good knot. We do recommend however to leave bags half full if you are putting a lot of glass bottles in them.

What type of containers are accepted and not accepted?

We accept, recycle and credit your Re-Centre online account for all New Brunswick deposit-bearing beverage containers. Deposit-bearing means that you paid a deposit fee upon purchase on top of the price of the item. All the following ready-to-drink beverage containers are deposit-bearing. If you purchased these beverage containers in New Brunswick, they can be returned to a Re-Centre depot:

  • water
  • flavoured waters
  • fruit juices
  • vegetable juices
  • soft drinks
  • beer
  • wine
  • spirits
  • low alcohol drinks

Only deposit-bearing beverage containers are accepted.  All other types of containers (non-deposit bearing beverage containers, food, household cleaning products, etc.) should not be placed in your Re-Centre bags. These items are recycled by Eco360 Southeast and can thus be put into your regular blue garbage bags.

What about beer cans, wine bottles, and other alcoholic drinks?

You can mix plastic, glass, and aluminum in your Re-Centre bags. You can put your empty beer cans and wine bottles in your Re-Centre bags along with your other empty beverage containers. The only containers that should be kept separate are refillable glass beer bottles. Since refillable glass beer bottles are sent back to local breweries, we recommend keeping these in their original cardboard cases and then placing the cases inside your Re-Centre bags.

What are New Brunswick deposit-bearing beverage containers?

New Brunswick deposit-bearing beverage containers are beverages for which you have paid a deposit upon purchase: soft drinks, beer, wine, spirits, water and flavoured waters, fruit and vegetable juices, as well as low alcohol drinks.  Information on deposit fees and refunds are available on Encorp Atlantic’s website.

Where are the Re-Centre depots located?

We currently have two Re-Centre depots located at 557 Mountain Road and 325 Killam Drive.

What are the Re-Centre depots hours of operation?

You can drop off your Re-Centre bags full of empty beverage containers at your convenience from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m., 7 days a week.

What do you mean by a pilot project?

A pilot project is meant to test new models and innovative practices during a particular time frame to measure their impact and results.

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 will 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 manages communications, member services, and member accounts.
