Deposit Beverage Containers

SARCAN accepts all deposit beverage containers for recycling. When you buy beverage containers in Saskatchewan, there is a non-refundable environmental handling charge and a refundable deposit added to each container at the time of check-out. When you bring your beverage containers back to SARCAN to get recycled, you receive the deposit refund cash back in your pocket.

It pays to recycle your deposit beverage containers at SARCAN!

Caps Off!Effective September 1st, 2022, all caps must be removed from your beverage containers in order to receive your deposit refund on those containers. Your caps must be removed because we flatten your containers to lower our fuel consumption and reduce our impact on our environment. With the containers flattened, we can fit nearly 4x as much material onto our trailers for shipment!

Thank you in advance for removing your caps before you visit your local SARCAN depot and keeping our environment clean and green!
