North Hill Bottle Depot - Making a Safe Space for Bottle Returns Amidst the COVID-19 Pandemic

North Hill Bottle Depot typically has one of the cleanest bottle depots in town but now also has a whole new look and feel. The protective equipment required and the safety measures we have put in place to ensure our staff and our customers are safe make us feel very confident that we are taking the proactive approach to keep everyone healthy when they come to work or to get a return on their bottles.

First Time to Depot

These days pretty much everyone agrees that recycling glass, plastic, and aluminum is a good thing; Recycling plays a big part in preserving the environment, makes communities cleaner and more attractive, and conserves valuable resources for future generations. But who has time to gather soda cans, bottles, and plastic containers and take them to a recycling centre every week or two?

Canadians Produce a Lot of Trash


It is estimated that the average Canadian produces about 30,000,000 tonnes of municipal solid waste each year. That’s 1.8 kg (4 lbs.) per day for every person. The Conference Board of Canada gave Canada a C grade on garbage production per capita and ranked it in 15th place among 17 developed nations studied across a host of environmental-efficiency metrics.

How Recycling Helps the Earth

 

 

Recycling glass, plastic, aluminum and other materials conserves energy and natural resources and reduces greenhouse gases and air and water pollution. For example:

 

 

Aluminum – Recycling of aluminum cans saves 95% of the energy required to make the same amount of aluminum from its virgin source. One ton of recycled aluminum saves 14,000 kilowatt hours (Kwh) of energy, 40 barrels of oil, 238 million Btu's of energy, and 10 cubic yards of landfill space.


Plastic – One ton of recycled plastic saves 5,774 Kwh of energy, 16.3 barrels of oil, 98 million BTUs of energy, and 30 cubic yards of landfill space.


Glass – One ton of recycled glass saves 42 Kwh of energy, 0.12 barrels of oil (5 gallons), 714,000 BTUs of energy, and 2 cubic yards of landfill space. It also avoids the release of 7.5 pounds of air pollutants. Over 30% of the raw material used in glass production now comes from recycled glass.
