Refundable Beverage Container Recycling

You paid the deposit. Don’t miss the refund. 

Rather than placing your empty beverage containers in your municipal recycling, collect the deposit you paid at purchase by bringing your empty beverage containers to a Return-It depot.

Return-It Express Logo Now it’s even easier to collect your refund with Encorp’s new Return-It Express system. Just bag it, tag it, and go - no sorting required! Redeem your refund for e-gift cards, a cheque, or a charitable donation. Learn more about the new Return-It Express system and create an account at Return-It Express 

Visit Return-It  for locations and more information on refundable beverage container recycling in Langley. 

Live in a multi-family building? Help your building collect refundable beverage containers. Money raised can go towards offsetting strata fees, planning building-wide events, or a charitable donation. For resources to help you get started, contact the Township’s Engineering Division at 604-532-7300 or opsinfo@tol.ca
