Alberta Dairy Council Milk Container Recycling Program



Show everyone you have a crush on Alberta!

Crush and recycle your empty milk containers!

Thanks to people all over Alberta, millions of empty milk containers are being recycled and turned into other useful products. Yes, thanks to you, we are now recycling 60% of the plastic milk jugs and nearly a quarter of the cardboard milk cartons. That means tonnes of waste are diverted from our landfill sites. But there are still millions more containers that can be recycled.

96% of Alberta residents have access to milk container recycling facilities in their local communities so you can recycle all your jugs, cartons, and single serve containers. Each and every one of them can be put to better use. Swish, squish and recycle them all. Your crush on Alberta will keep growing and growing.
