Win a Smart Car, Vespas or Mountain Bikes at Return-It Depots

Recycle for a chance to win

BURNABY, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - May 9, 2013) - Hit the road in style with one of three eco-friendly rides by entering Encorp Pacific's Return-It to Win-It Contest. Return your empty beverage containers to a participating Return-It Depot from May 1, 2013 until September 2, 2013 and, in addition to receiving your deposit refund and recycling, you can enter to win a new set of wheels.

The grand prize: the 2013 Smart Car fortwo coupe, boasts low fuel consumption and low emissions but offers impressive technical features such as enhanced agility and performance. Last year, Gary Gervais, from Kamloops won the grand prize. Gary recycled his empty beverage containers and filled out the winning ballot at General Grant's Depot in Kamloops.

The second prize is two Vespa Scooters. The third prize, is a pair of mountain bikes and a gift card to Canadian Tire to purchase helmets.

"Just by recycling beverage containers last year, BC residents saved enough energy to power 42,000 homes, took the equivalent of 26,000 cars off BC roads, and reduced 94,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent from being released into our atmosphere," said Sandy Sigmund VP Development & CMO of Encorp Pacific. "Return-It to Win-It is a great opportunity for Return-It Depots to thank customers by offering them a chance to win great prizes."
