Better Returns

At The Beer Store environmental leadership is a core value.

We are one of the few retailers in North America that takes back all the packaging we sell. Bottles, cans, cardboard packaging, bottle caps, plastic rings and bags, you name it – if we sell it – we take it back.

In fact, we take back more than we sell! For years we have been taking back Liquor Control Board of Canada (LCBO) beer containers and with the introduction of the Ontario Deposit Return Program (ODRP) in 2007, we began to accept back for deposit refund all liquor containers over 100ml – wine, spirits and coolers.

We understand that it can be a bit daunting to return all the variety of empties. And we know that many of you want to do the right thing and want to be a good recycler and protector of the environment. To help us help you, we’ve put together a step-by-step instruction booklet and guide to ensure you are providing ‘Better Returns’ at The Beer Store! Please refer to this guide as a handy reminder before your next visit to our stores. We encourage you to share this information with friends and family so we all become great ambassadors on recycling, reusing and returning.
