Parksville Bottle & Recycling and Qualicum Bottle & Recycling: Help Save the Environment and You Could Win a Camping Set

Encorp Pacific (Canada) Raising Awareness for Beverage Container Recycling

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - June 11, 2010) - Return your empty beverage containers to Parksville Bottle & Recycling and Qualicum Bottle & Recycling between May 1 and July 1, 2010 and – in addition to receiving a refund and feeling good about recycling responsibly – you can enter to win a family camping package for four people. The set comes with a six-person tent, camping chairs, cooler and lantern. It's all you need for the perfect BC summer adventure. Encorp Pacific's eight-week 'Return-It to Win-It' campaign is aimed at generating awareness for BC's beverage container recycling program.

On Saturday, June 19, 2010 both locations will celebrate beverage container recycling with fun, family events that will feature an appearance by Return-It Man, music, give-aways and special prizes. Everyone is welcome to attend! The depots are located at:

Depot Address Event Hours Depot Hours
Parksville Bottle & Recycling 611 A Alberni Highway, Parksville 2pm-6pm Open daily 8am-6pm
Qualicum Bottle & Recycling Unit 4, 141 – 4th Avenue, Qualicum Beach 9am-1pm Open Mon-Sat 9am-5pm

"Just by recycling, last year, BC residents saved enough energy to power 65,000 homes, took the equivalent of 37,000 cars off BC roads, and reduced about 137,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent from being released into our atmosphere," said Neil Hastie, President and CEO of Encorp Pacific. "Return-It to Win-It is a great opportunity for us to thank our existing and new depot customers by offering them a chance to win great prizes."
