Recycle to Win an Eco-Friendly Ride at Your Local Return-It Depot

Encorp Pacific (Canada) Raising Awareness for Beverage Container Recycling

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - April 30, 2012) - Return your empty beverage containers to a participating Return-It Depot from now until September 3, 2012 and, in addition to receiving your deposit refund and feeling good about recycling, you can enter to win one of three eco-friendly rides; a 2012 Smart Car fortwo coupe, two Vespa Scooters, or a pair of mountain bikes with a gift card to Canadian Tire to purchase helmets. Encorp Pacific's four month 'Return-It to Win-It' campaign will raise awareness for BC's beverage container recycling program.

"Just by recycling beverage containers last year, BC residents saved enough energy to power 46,000 homes, took the equivalent of 27,000 cars off BC roads, and reduced 94,000 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 customers by offering them a chance to win great prizes."

Turn your empties into a new set of wheels! For more information and a list of all participating depots, visit return-it.ca/winit.
