All ready-to-drink beverage containers (*except milk and milk substitutes) carry a deposit fee on them. They are also banned from disposal (as garbage) in the Metro Vancouver area and must be recycled. These include water and pop bottles/cans, juice boxes, wine bottle/boxes, beer cans, etc. You can try returning them to your point-of-purchase, or you can bring them to any Encorp bottle depot for a refund.
