Recycle Beverage Containers

Recycle Everywhere promotes beverage container recycling wherever beverages are consumed—at work, at school, at play or at home.

About Recycle Everywhere

We’re Changing the Landscape

Founded in 2010, the Canadian Beverage Container Recycling Association (CBCRA) is a not-for-profit, industry-funded organization whose membership includes beverage brand owners and distributors. CBCRA is committed to reaching the government-mandated target of recovering 75% of beverage containers sold in Manitoba. CBCRA implemented and operates the Recycle Everywhere program. Recycle Everywhere strives to educate Manitobans on beverage container recycling, and ensure that it is convenient to recycle empty beverage containers no matter where you live, work or play.

Literally Everywhere

We provide blue bins no matter where you are

Recycle Everywhere promotes beverage container recycling wherever beverages are consumed, both at home and away from home. This includes Canada’s first province-wide away from home beverage container recycling program. Recycle Everywhere has partnered with communities, municipalities, schools, businesses, institutions, parks, festivals and events throughout Manitoba to provide them with the best Recycle Everywhere bin for the space free of charge. Partners simply arrange for the collection of the recovered beverage containers with a recycler. Together with our partners, we are enabling new products to be made, decreasing greenhouse gas emissions, and reducing litter in streets and parks.

Look for our blue bins in communities across Manitoba and recycle all your empty cans, cartons, juice boxes, glass and plastic bottles.

How it works

Get To Know Our Infrastructure

Beverage producers supplying the Manitoba market pay a Container Recycling Fee (CRF) for every non-alcoholic, non-dairy beverage container that enters the province. This fee funds the entire beverage container recycling program, from infrastructure, signage and technical support to promotion and education.

The Process

The CRF ensures that each beverage container sold supports the recycling process.

Through the Container Recycling Fee (CRF), industry producers fund the Canadian Beverage Container Recycling Association (CBCRA) to recover their materials in all channels, including both the residential and away-from-home sectors.
