More Bins

Our bins and educational resources can be found in workspaces, homes, and communities across Manitoba. With more than 70,000 public space bins at swimming pools, arenas, community centres, libraries and more, Recycle Everywhere is making it easier to recycle your empty beverage containers no matter where you are!

Less Litter

Recycle Everywhere bins can be found in public spaces in each of the cities listed to the right. In every instance, beverage container litter in city streets has decreased since the baseline audits began, with no other new litter abatement programs being in place.

Higher Recovery Rates

We have worked for—and enjoyed—many successes since the program’s inception in 2010. During that time, we’ve  increased the overall beverage container recovery rate from 42% to 69% at the end of 2018, including an impressive recovery rate of 77% for PET (polyethylene).

Results Worth Repeating

Using recycled beverage containers to manufacture new ones conserves resources, reduces greenhouse gas emissions and saves energy required to process new raw materials. 

Our programs also keep thousands of tonnes of beverage containers out of the garbage and reduce litter, extending the life of Manitoba’s landfills and increasing sustainability. These are results we will continue to build on.
