Recycling cannabis packaging in Alberta


CALGARY – High Tide Inc., an Alberta-based downstream cannabis corporation focused on the manufacturing and wholesale distribution of smoking accessories and cannabis lifestyle products, has launched a free recycling program in its Canna Cabana retail cannabis stores for all Health Canada-approved cannabis product packaging.

Canna Cabana is implementing the program in each of its five existing stores in Calgary, Edmonton, Lethbridge and Whitecourt, Alberta. The recycling program will also be offered at all new Canna Cabana stores opening across Canada.

The program was developed in response to consistent customer feedback regarding the cannabis consumer experience and is consistent with High Tide’s values as a socially-responsible organization.

“We heard from our customers, loud and clear, that they weren’t happy when it came to the excess amount of packaging that is required for cannabis products,” says Raj Grover, High Tide’s founder, president and CEO.

“Although we have no control over the packaging of cannabis products, we decided that the least we could do was to help collect and recycle it for customers.”

The free program accepts any and all cannabis packaging purchased from a licensed retailer, including outer and inner plastic packaging, tins, joint tubes, plastic bottles, plastic caps and flexible plastic bags.

All packaging materials featuring the Health Canada THC symbol can be dropped off at any Canna Cabana store. All collected recyclables will be sent to a qualified recycling services provider to be reused, upcycled or recycled into a variety of affordable, sustainable consumer products and industrial applications.
