Retail co-operatives across Manitoba help Co-op members and customers Recycle Everywhere

Manitoba, Canada, 2016-Jul-12 — /EPR Retail News/ — Retail co-operatives across Manitoba are helping Co-op members and customers Recycle Everywhere.

The award-winning recycling program, which is administered by the Canadian Beverage Container Recycling Association, now has a presence in all 43 retail co-operatives in the province.

“Co-op is pleased to partner with CBCRA and bring Recycle Everywhere bins to our Manitoba Co-op Gas Bars, Food Stores and Home Centres,” said Greg Gill, Retail Advisor with Federated Co-operative Limited.

“Annually diverting tonnes of empty beverage containers from Manitoba landfills aligns with our commitment to the environment and reflects the wishes of our customers and employees.”

There are currently 45,000 Recycle Everywhere bins in Manitoba.

“We applaud Manitoba Co-ops for their commitment to CBCRA’s Recycle Everywhere program,” said Ken Friesen, CBCRA’s Executive Director. “This is a significant step in getting Recycle Everywhere bins into every gas bar in Manitoba, where ultimately as many as 10 million beverage containers can be diverted from our landfills annually.”
