Each year, Divert NS holds an ENVIRO-DEPOT Contest to raise awareness about recycling and the beverage container deposit-refund program, and to encourage Nova Scotians to visit their local ENVIRO-DEPOT™.

The ENVIRO-DEPOT™ Recycle to Win Contest is Back!

By recycling your beverage containers at your local ENVIRO-DEPOT™, you not only help the environment, but you help yourself, too! For every beverage container you return to an ENVIRO-DEPOT™, you’ll get a refund...

From March 13 to 31, 2017, tell us how you use your beverage container refund and you could win our grand prize of $500 or two runner-up prizes of $250.


Tell us how you spend your beverage container refund with the Divert NS Recycle to Win contest, running March 13-31, 2017. By sharing how you use your refund you will be entered to win one (1) cash prize of $500 and two (2) cash prizes of $250.
