The Beer Store’s Recycling Plus pilot launches stand-alone returns facility

stew-ontarioRecycling Plus, an initiative by The Beer Store, is a stand-alone returns facility that aims to make it easier for consumers returning beer, wine, spirit and cooler empties.

Working with two key partners (Stewardship Ontario and Sims Recycling Solutions), the facility will also accept paint, batteries and household electronics.

This pilot project is the first of its kind in Ontario and will test the viability of establishing additional outlets across the province.

The launch, held Friday, February 15 at 10am at 299 Campbell Avenue in Toronto (Facing Dupont St., one block west of Lansdowne Ave.) will be attended by The Beer Store officials, the Minister of the Environment, cooperating partners and municipal representatives.
