An agreement between the Alberta government and the Alberta Beverage Container Recycling Corporation (ABCRC) will simplify recycling beverage containers in provincial parks.
Under the Community Champions Program, some 140 bear-and insect-proof recycle containers will be installed in more than 50 Alberta parks, province-wide.
The park recycling containers will be provided and installed by the ABCRC, which collects and recycles non-beer beverage containers. Value of the containers and installation is about $150,000.
The Community Champions Program currently involves more than 500 Alberta schools, six community-based initiatives and this new partnership in Alberta’s parks.
