Government of New Brunswick
Processing Plants

At the Redemption Centre, the containers are further sorted, bagged, and shipped by truck to a number of regional facilities. Here the containers are prepared for processing and sent to one of 2 plants:

Neighbourhood Recycling or Encorp Atlantic

The N.B. Liquor Corporation has contracted with Neighbourhood Recycling to process all alcoholic beverage containers.

All non-alcoholic beverage containers are processed by Encorp Atlantic.

Refillable beer bottles are returned directly to the breweries.

The average number of containers being processed by these plants every day would fill 20 tractor trailors!

Refillable containers are sent to wash-line to be sterilized in order to be refilled.
