Effective June 30, the Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission (AGLC) will apply a recycling fee to the wholesale price of spirits, wine, cider and cooler products. The Alberta Beverage Container Recycling Regulation ensures that liquor and non-liquor beverage containers are recycled; the Alberta Beverage Container Recycling Corporation collects a container recovery fee from all beverage manufacturers based on their sales. The AGLC is responsible for all costs of the return system for spirits, wine, ciders, coolers and non-Alberta made beer. Domestic beer manufacturers operate their own system. Currently, the recycling cost applies only to imported beer products.
