Sarcan Recycling, a division of the Saskatchewan Association of Rehabilitation Centres (SARC), has announced an agreement with the dairy industry to recycle Saskatchewan milk containers. SARC — also the manager and operator of the province’s beverage container recycling program — aims to achieve a 75 per cent return rate. As of February 18, 2001, the program began to accept plastic milk jugs and will expand on July 1 to include paper milk cartons. The Dairy Container Recycling Advisory Board — with representatives from SARC, Saskatchewan Environment, participating dairies, the Saskatchewan Milk Control Board and municipal government — supervises the voluntary program. It will be financed at the wholesale level by a recycling fee of two cents per four-litre plastic milk jug and one cent per jug or carton one litre or more.
