Beverage Container Program


This GNWT recycling initiative helps divert containers that would otherwise end up in Northwest Territories (NWT) landfills. In Yellowknife, bring all types of empty ready-to-serve beverage containers to The Bottle Shop to receive your refund. For more information on the program and what containers are recyclable, visit the NT Government's Beverage Container Program page.
