Recycle Plus I and Plus II Bottle Depots are part of a larger organization called Signature Support Services Society.  Signature Support Services Society provides individuals with developmental disabilities with supports such as assisted housing, skills training, job development and workplace coaching.

Recycle Plus I has been around since 1980 and Plus II was built and opened in 2006.  These two bottle depots serve the City of Grande Prairie and the surrounding area.  These businesses also help to employ developmentally disabled individuals as well as contribute to funding for programs these individuals may not otherwise be able to participate in.

Beverage Container Recycling is a regulated industry under the purview of Alberta Environment and Sustainable Resource Development. A Designated Operating Authority called the BCMB (Beverage Container Management Board) oversees the industry and is tasked with the permitting of depots, ensuring all beverages sold within Alberta are registered by the manufacturers and ensuring the beverage container industry does its best to serve the Alberta consumer with their recycling efforts.

A return rate (empty beverage containers returned to those sold in the province) is set at 85% and last year Albertans achieved over 86%.  Our bottle depots are run as not for profit businesses and are among the best in the province.  They have been the recipients of many industry awards.
